The Colby College Environmental Studies Program is organizing and hosting the Conference on Students as Catalysts for Large Landscape Conservation with support from Colby’s Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement and in collaboration with numerous partner universities, colleges, and research institutions. Conference organization is coordinated by Colby College Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Philip Nyhus and Research Assistant Virginia Keesler with the support of many others.
The conference builds off the work of the Conservation Catalyst Network (CCN) (formerly Program on Academic and Research Institutions as Conservation Catalysts (PARCC)), an initiative that explores the unique role of colleges, universities, and research institutions as catalysts for biodiversity conservation across large and complex landscapes. CCN was launched in 2011 by researchers at Harvard University, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, and the Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy at the University of Montana.
