iAct Dialogues for Sustainability: First webinar is now online

27 August 2013 | News story

The iAct Dialogues are a series of global webinars on key sustainability, systems change, and leadership topics. View the video for the discussion on 'Development and Conservation Conflict'.

The first webinar by iAct Dialogues was held July 25, 2013. The intergenerational conversation on Development and Conservation Conflict focused on conceptualising the bigger picture while developing a vision for the future. Webinar speakers and 30 participants identified key challenges and questions, and proposed solutions for increasing resilience of natural and social systems. The webinar culminated in brainstorming action steps that participants can take for promoting sustainability in their personal and professional lives.

The event was led by Sustainability Leaders Network, Earth Charter International, and the IUCN Task Force on Intergenerational Partnership for  Sustainability and sponsored and co-designed by the Sibthorp Trust in the United Kingdom.

CEC member Dominic Stucker, Sustainability Leaders Network Programs Manager, collaborated with Nora Mahmoud, Earth Charter International Youth Coordinator, to moderate the webinar.

The iAct Dialogues are a series of global webinars on key sustainability, systems change, and leadership topics, each introduced by a few experts, practitioners, and community leaders of a diversity of ages. The webinars are interactive, inviting participants into breakout groups for in-depth discussion in their preferred language and reconvening the group to share insights and action steps. Participants and the public are invited to join our intergenerational iAct Facebook Group to carry discussions forward.
