Creative Conservation: Invigorating Environmental Education & Outreach in the Gulf of Honduras – a celebration of the multi-year conservation initiative in partnership between leading conservation organizations in Guatemala and Belize and Creative Action Institute, will be held on Wednesday August 10th at 6:30 PM at the Mexican Institute in Belize City, Belize. The reception is open to the public, and all are welcome.
Featured in the opening reception will be the photo exhibit Transforming Communities, highlighting the powerful work of transforming and engaging communities around conservation issues through creativity and the arts.
This reception and exhibit also marks the launch of the Creative Conservation Curriculum, a collection of strategies and projects developed with partner organizations to more effectively engage stakeholders around key initiatives. This curriculum will serve to enable a worldwide network of environmental change leaders to replicate and initiate creative strategies in their work and will be available to all conservation organizations on www.creativeactioninstitute.org in late Summer, 2016.
Transforming Communities photo exhibit will be on display at the Mexican Institute August 10th - 16th, 2016.
The Gulf of Honduras Creative Conservation Project, supported in part by the OAK Foundation and New England Biolabs Foundation, supports the management and protection of sixteen ecosystems across Belize and Guatemala by expanding the leadership and engagement capacity of a cohort of six leading conservation organizations.
