The 2022 RCP Network Gathering will be held virtually on November 17 from 9 am to 3 pm.

In our 2020 and 2021 Virtual RCP Network Gatherings, we introduced the concepts of Land Justice and Equity and the place for Conservation organizations in advancing Land Justice.

In 2022, we will shift our focus to the “how” of Land Justice and resilience:

  • How does Climate Justice relate to your work?
  • How do we build new, authentic, mutually valuable relationships?
  • What concrete steps can we take to incorporate justice into our work?
  • How can we deepen our relationships with each other as a network of peers?

Our Keynote Speakers will talk about Why and How to “build a new table” in conservation work — one that includes all people interested in conserving their community’s resources and strengthening its resilience.

There will be a morning and afternoon session covering:

  • Relationship Building for Conservation and Climate: How to form transformational relationships with new partners
  • Collaboration for Conservation and Climate: How organizations are collaborating to build Climate Justice and Resilience into their work and community

Panel discussions and breakout session activities will include:

  • Lowering the barriers that prevent us from being more inclusive so we can help advance Land Justice
  • The simple steps we can take to change how we connect with our communities
  • How to advance Land Justice without mission drift

Don’t miss the chance to learn, connect and make a plan to advance collaborative landscape protection in your community at the 2022 RCP Network Gathering.

Participate the way you want

While we have designed the virtual event to engage participants from beginning to end, we’ve also built in flexibility understanding the competing demands on your time. So we encourage you to participate at whatever level and degree you choose. Come for just one session or all. Watch and listen or actively participate before, during, and/or after.
