Please see this opportunity to access funded training in management and business skills for Protected Area staff in Africa - marine and terrestrial parks - through the Earth Skills Network.


The Earth Skills Network is a unique collaboration between Earthwatch, UNESCO, IUCN and the business community. It connects leaders from the business and conservation community through mentoring and skill-sharing opportunities. The knowledge gained through this global network provides new resources to safeguard the future of vital conservation areas.

In 2015 Earthwatch are running a number of ESN training programmes, which are available to protected areas, World Heritage Sites, protected area agencies or management authorities in Africa. The Earth Skills Network provides funded training in:

-     business planning and effective management practices and,

-     personal development of leadership capabilities, with

-     12 months of mentoring from an ESN corporate member with significant business experience.

Combined, this can help sites to take a more strategic approach to planning and tackling a range of specific organisational issues.

We are offering training for 18 staff from 6 African sites who will value training in business management and operational effectiveness, and will be in a position to put what they have learned into practice

Application Launch: 5th January 2015

Application Close: 27th February 2015
