Call for Papers
ICOM-CC Education and Training in Conservation Working Group

Conservation Education and Training in Africa, Asia and South
America regions of the world are underrepresented within ICOM-CC and
that much working group activity is based in Europe or the North
Americas.  Out of a total membership of 2,240 only 1.3% are from
Africa, 2.3% from Asia and 5% from Latin America (the majority from
Brazil).  We would like to publish a special e-newsletter in advance
of the Triennial Conference in Melbourne that will reflect current
issues and ideas about conservation education and training worldwide
in a more representative way.  Experiences from Africa, Asia and
South America, as well as other parts of the world less represented
in ICOM-CC are to be the focus of this newsletter.  Papers might
discuss programmes, the contexts of workshops, short courses or any
other activity that has contributed to developing the knowledge and
understanding of conservation practice.  If you would like to share
your knowledge and experience with us please send a short paper in
English (up to 500 words with two or three images) before the end of
June 2014 to jean.brown<-a t->northumbria< . >ac< . >uk

The e-newsletter will be available via the ICOM-CC Education and
Training Working Group webpages from mid 2014 July until the
Triennial Meeting in Melbourne in September 2014.

It is hoped that one of the outcomes of the publication will be to
strengthen the network of conservators around the world who are
involved in education and training.  It is also hoped that the
strengthened connectivity will open the way for exchanges and
collaborative projects between colleagues working in the field of
conservation education and training
