TNC coaches connect with CCNet coaches in Europe

Annick Cros - TNC; Cristina Lasch - TNC

In this three-page summary you can read about the experience of 2 TNC coaches who attended the CCNet Europe Rally.

In November 2011, two of TNC’s Global Conservation Network (CCNet) coaches, Annick Cros and Cristina Lasch, were invited to participate in the first  workshop and rally hosted by CCNet Europe. The goal of the workshop was to introduce the Open Standards to conservation practitioners across Europe and help promote the method in their countries. Furthermore, this event served as a training ground for new coaches, and ended in a three day coach rally. The event lasted 7 days and was hosted by the Obra Social Caixa Cataluna in Delta del Ebre, one of Spain’s and the Mediterranean’s important wetlands and agricultural areas. The event had a great turn out with 60 participants, 19 nationalities, 6 projects and a very high level of enthusiasm and energy.
