Where do we go from here?

Changing the Conversation and Nature Canada just led the final e-Dialogue from our 4-part Biodiversity Conversation series. Over the last 8 months, over 20 female researchers, practitioners, and civil society leaders from Women for Nature explored local to global actions and strategies for biodiversity conservation. During the final conversation, panelists were asked to address recommendations from the previous three to develop more concrete on-the-ground actions. Now that the series has come to a close, Professor Ann Dale will be drafting an action agenda for Canadian decision-makers summarizing the recommendations for biodiversity conservation in Canada. Imagine if we design with biodiversity in mind, the possibilities that would open up.

Changing the Conversation

We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
