Welcome to our discussion forum on biocultural diversity conservation! Here is where we all come together to network, share ideas, and learn from one another. We call this forum “Conservation in Conversation”, because we wish to stimulate a global conversation that will profoundly change how conservation is done.
If we recognize that there is an inextricable link between biological, cultural, and linguistic diversity, then we must learn how to integrate the conservation of biodiversity with the maintenance and revitalization of cultural and linguistic diversity. The 45 projects that we described and analyzed in our book Biocultural Diversity Conservation: A Global Sourcebook offer a great variety of inspiring ideas and solutions about biocultural diversity conservation. But we know that there is an even greater wealth of ideas and solutions out there, only waiting to be tapped! Together, we can build a powerful knowledge base that everyone can benefit from. And by using our collective wisdom, we can become stronger, more visible, and “push the boundaries” of conservation worldwide.
Just register and start interacting with other people around the world! Post your thoughts, questions and suggestions about biocultural diversity conservation. Create new threads or respond to previous postings. Your contributions can also become part of the pool of “Stories” and “Solutions” on other pages of this portal.
This forum is for all of you who care about biocultural diversity – use it actively, and make it a vibrant space for promoting understanding, appreciation, and protection of the biocultural diversity of life!
