2018 Frankfurt Spring School on Conservation Project Management

At Frankfurt Spring School aspiring conservationists gain the essential skills to kick-start their careers. International conservation experts share their knowledge and experiences over a diverse four-week training programme.

All over the world governmental and non-governmental organisations initiate and implement projects dedicated to the conservation of natural resources. Such projects are ideally run by biologists who have knowledge and understanding of biodiversity related issues as well as managerial abilities.

Through this spring school, expert knowledge, skills, and practical experience related to conservation project management will be taught to advanced students of biology and related subjects, to biologists at the beginning of their professional career, and to junior project managers from Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The teachers are professionals and practitioners of biodiversity-related institutions of the Goethe University Frankfurt, and of multiple international organisations from across the globe. We aim to provide an insight into project development and management for conservation projects as well as promoting future managers and leaders of conservation projects.
