This is the second of three planned cornerstone events in our project and follows on from the first meeting with our project partners, which we held online in November 2020. These meetings and events are designed to monitor the progress of the project, but also to gain hands-on experience of different facets of everyday conservation practice and how it relates to our research goals and final outputs.
Thursday 2nd September
The field trip will be led by WP2 researchers and the morning will involve walking a participant-designed path within the park area to explore in situ the early results emerging from the research and discuss transdisciplinary research methods. A packed lunch will be provided.
In the afternoon Corridor Talk researchers will present a short update on progress at the other project field sites. This will be followed by a structured discussion on how these activities and the different methodological approaches used within the Corridor Talk project can be used to enrich the methods used in the Pyrenees and the knowledge emerging from this field site. Project partners will be invited to discuss how integrated approaches of this kind might be of interest to conservation practice.
Dinner for all participants.
Friday 3rd September
A Pyrenees National Park agent specializing in the implementation of nature conservation policy on the ground will showcase a key current challenge facing the Pyrenees National Park. This component will include a site visit, a discussion with the research team on the challenges park staff face, and an updated review of how best the research outputs will be able to support decision making.
The workshop will end with a light lunch for all participants.
The Corridor Talk Team will hold a closed project meeting on the afternoon of 3 September to review conceptual frameworks and methodologies and discuss the upcoming project aims.
