Conservation Social Science Course – November 2022

Sep 12, 2022 | General

I’m delighted to share with you that the next Introduction to Conservation Social Science Course will be available to book from Thursday 29th September

This course is designed to build your knowledge and confidence using conservation social science – allowing you to better understand what it is, how it is delivered and how it can help you better understand the individuals and communities you work with. 

Course Format

The course is delivered online with two components. 

Firstly, a set of three recorded modules with videoed lessons and workbooks for you to complete independently.  The recorded content is just over five and a half hours and you’ll need between two and eight hours to complete the workbook tasks. 

Secondly, there are four live workshops, held over Zoom and run by me (Dr Rebecca Jefferson).  These 90-minute workshops give you a chance to ask questions about the content included in the modules, explore what it means for your own projects and meet other course participants. 

Important Dates

Course start date: Wednesday 2nd November – Workshop One and access to the recorded materials

Workshop Two: Wednesday 9th November

Workshop Three: Wednesday 16th November

Workshop Four: Wednesday 23rd November

Workshop times: All workshops are run twice – once at 10am and once at 8pm GMT (London).  This means you can join at the time which works for your time zone.  Or join twice if you prefer! 

At each workshop you meet other conservation professionals completing the course, share insights, questions and experiences.

You get access to the recorded material for 12 months from the start of the course. 

The course will be available to book from Thursday 29th September


The course is £250 per person.  There is a reduced price of £225 for students/charity sector. 

If you have a group of 10 or more who would like to complete the course please email me to discuss the group options. 

In the coming weeks I’m going to be sharing information about the course on LinkedIn, so head over there and connect with me to find out more.

Reflections on ICCB

You may have spotted on social media that I was at the 31st International Congress for Conservation Biology in Rwanda last week.  It was a really good trip, good to do all the things we've learnt to appreciate about in person events recently.  (And of...

Reflections on starting a business

Three and a half years ago I stepped away from employment in a large conservation organisation to launch my own business - Human Nature.  I’ve recently been asked a few questions about this shift from employee to independent.  It’s been an exhilarating few years. ...
