Who is it for?

Open to registration by individuals and we can accommodate a maximum of 24 participants.



The Conservation Coaches Network Europe (CCNet) and Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (Durrell) are delighted to be collaborating on this exciting workshop.

The Trainers for this workshop are Xavier Escute (Fundació Catalunya la Pedrera) and Catherine Payne (Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust).


What is the course content?

This workshop will take participants through the five-step approach of the CMP Open Standards, with a focus on Step 1 and Step 2. The workshop offers a mix of theory, practice, reflection and peer review. The trainer and coach team will introduce you to the theory through presentations. You will then put theory into practice during group work sessions focusing on a case study before sharing your results with other groups. All groups will share their lessons learned and thoughts in plenary. Each team is supported by a coach and coach-in-training (see below).

During the workshop, groups are encouraged and assisted to capture session-outcomes using Miradi, a specially designed software for using the Open Standards. It is recommended to bring a laptop to make the most out of the workshop.

The main workshop language will be English.


How will you benefit?

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to apply the Open Standards (including the supporting software Miradi) to plan and adaptively manage their own projects. This includes being able to:

  • Conduct a participatory situation analysis including identification and assessment of targets (species and ecosystems of interest), direct threats to targets and the primary drivers, and human wellbeing benefits provided by the targets through ecosystem services;
  • Identify conservation strategies (interventions) and their component activities, and set conservation goals and objectives;
  • Develop and test theories of change for chosen conservation strategies;
  • Develop a strategy-oriented monitoring plan, work plan and budget that enables testing of assumptions, learning, and adapting.


Where will the course be run?

The workshop will be held at the Durrell Conservation Academy, Jersey Zoo, Jersey. During the training workshop, you will be staying at Durrell’s hostel, which is immediately adjacent to Durrell Conservation Academy.

The workshop will begin on Sunday 20 October at 17.30 with a festive welcome. From Monday to Friday, the workshop will run from 08.30 to 17.30, each day.
