October 19, 20 and 21, 2015
Wyndham Excelsior Hotel - Berlin, Germany

The International Land Conservation Network (ILCN) is connecting organizations and people who are accelerating voluntary private protection and stewardship of land and water resources. A recent International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) report said "privately protected areas deserve far greater recognition and support than is the case at the moment." The report highlights the ongoing need for training and improved knowledge-sharing.

The First Annual Congress of ILCN aims to start making such know-how available and to share best practices, expertise and the ability to build organizational leadership and operating capacity. The gathering will assemble practitioners, innovators and experts in the growing field of voluntary private land conservation and restoration, from around Europe as well as from North, Central and South America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.  
The invitation-only event is strictly limited to 100 individuals

Call for Proposals for the First Annual Congress of the International Land Conservation Network
Through a series of plenary sessions, workshops, and facilitated dialogues on key topics, Congress participants will engage in a wide range of sessions and workshops considering the challenges and opportunities ahead for private land conservation.  

The ILCN Congress Program Committee invites proposals for sessions and workshops. Share lessons learned and best practices relevant to privately protected landscapes, including those focused on:
Finance, Law and Organizational Strategy
Capacity Building
Baseline Data regarding International Private Land Conservation, and Stewardship.

Sessions are 90 minute presentations by one to three presenters that explore a particular topic in depth. Session presenters typically present their ideas for up to 60 minutes, leaving 30 minutes or more for questions, answers and discussion. Session proposals should include 1) a session title; 2) presenter name(s), title(s) and organization(s); 3) an abstract of up to 250 words; 4) value proposition (up to 50 words on why the presentation would be of interest to participants), and; 5) full contact details.

Workshops, also 90 minutes in length, can be series of presentations that offer multiple speakers with shorter talks in a panel discussion, and/or facilitated workshops and sharing circles in which participants work collaboratively to advance their collective understanding of a particular topic.

Fire is used as a tool for management of rural and forest lands in many regions of the world. The application of fire as a management tool aimed to change the publicity caused by the media, and return the ecological role of fire to the ecosystems. Fire has an important role in the functioning of many ecosystems, and many species and habitats depend on the fire occurrence. However, high severity fires produce negative impacts in the ecosystems and society and are these that should be avoided. Gradually, prescribed fire for different management objectives have been introduced, extended. However, it is still in an early stage, and in some regions and countries is not well viewed and their use is still with a very negative image and even prohibited. One of the controversial aspects is the impact that these fires can cause to the environment. The aim of this conference is to identify the opportunities and constraints of use fire as a land management tool, from an environmental, social and economic perspectives and share the most novel research and technical expertise carried out in different scenarios around the world.

January 24-26, 2018 in Santiago, Chile

The 2018 Global Congress will build upon the momentum, conversations, collaborations, and relationships that have emerged over the past several years. The Congress will explore a range of topics in the areas of conservation finance; law and policy; organization and governance; and land management, restoration, and stewardship.

Through a series of plenary discussions, wide ranging workshops, and facilitated dialogues, Congress participants will consider the challenges and opportunities ahead for private land conservation. In addition, the Congress will include a field trip that features several important Chilean conservation stories, allowing hosts to share their successes and participants to build relationships in an informal atmosphere. The Congress is free to participants. Registration will open this fall.
