EAB: International Symposium on Society and Resource Management

6 month report continued…

We were invited to conduct a tour of some of the sustainability initiatives in the Schenk-Atwood neighborhood and provide insight for visitors about things like the EAB urban forestry survey, the community garden, bike path and other local movements for sustainability. In particular, this group was curious about how to work with communities. This conferences theme was “Integrating Conservation and Sustainable Living” and was made up of social scientists, students and practitioners from places like the National Park Service, Forestry Department, and other areas. The group of 15 included participants from Japan and Switzerland. You can read more about the conference here: http://www.issrm2011madison.iasnr.org/
