[Symposium Report] International Symposium “Local Communities and Nature Conservation”

The international symposium “Local Communities and Nature Conservation” was held at the University of Tsukuba, Tokyo Campus on November 23rd, 2017. The symposium was organized by  students, participating in the Certification Programme on Nature Conservation (CPNC). There were six key-note speakers from both Japan and abroad, sharing their knowledge through the case studies in each area. 120 participants gathered, despite the rain, showing a strong interest to this theme.

Moderators included Associate Professor/ Dr. Ikuyo Saeki (Session 1), Tsukuba University students- Tomoya Kazuya (Session 2), and Shoma Jungu (Session 3). Participants included those, from research institutes, private companies, NPOs and governmental organizations, resulting in very fruitful discussion.  

Twenty students introduced their research in a flash talk (thirty seconds per person). During the poster session time, both students and participants discussed deeply. At the same time, the students’ poster presentation was evaluated  for the Poster Award.

At the end of the symposium, nine students voiced their acknowledgement and the symposium ended with applause.

The planning and operation was implemented under the ‘Nature Conservation Special Field PracticalsⅡ’.

Certificate Programme on Nature Conservation

University of Tsukuba launches the “Certificate Programme on Nature Conservation (CPNC)” in April 2014 thanks to some endowment from a charitable individual. CPNC is a certificate programme for graduate students enrolled in World Heritage Studies, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences or Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences, at the University of Tsukuba. CPNC provides a unique opportunity of interdisciplinary study on the conservation of natural and cultural heritage as well as the on-the-job training experience at protected areas and/or conservation organizations. We aim at educating students who will be able to work actively at international organizations and international cooperation agencies in the future.
