The Open Standards, as they are known, have been developed over
many years by conservation practitioners from many organisations,
including Conservation Management, to “help teams be systematic
about planning, implementing, and monitoring their conservation
initiatives so they can learn what works, what does not work,
and why – and ultimately adapt and improve their efforts.”
They, and all their supporting materials, are produced under Creative Commons licensing
which means they are freely available to anyone who wants them and wants to work with them.
Many of the Conservation Management team are also Conservation Coaches,
and are part of the Australian franchise of the Coaches Network. Coaches work with teams
to help them develop and implement their plans, as well as train others to also become coaches.
If you are interested in being trained in the Open Standards, or becoming a Coach, keep an eye out on the Coaches website for announcements about training opportunities, or get in touch with us.
