On April 20th we are organising a Community of Practice session about transformative landscape governance.
Multi-stakeholder landscape partnerships are complex, and challenging. A shared vision is hard enough to create, and it is just the beginning of many years of collaboration toward it. Without a clear, structured, and agreed upon governance structure, collaboration will inevitably be ridden by conflict and exhausting decision-making processes. So, we must organise ourselves better if we want to transform our landscapes. Governance is the engine that supports us in moving forward even when things get out of rail.
For this reason, we have invited Robert Styles who is the director of learning and engagement of ProSocial- an organisation and approach to facilitate the cooperation and collaboration of groups at local, regional, national, and international scales.
During this session Robert will take us through the 8 governance principles of Elinor Ostrom and explain how inclusive, equitable, adaptive and prosocial governance structures at a landcape scale can create transformative systemic change. He will touch on evolutionary and behavioral sciences and provide tools and resources during the session that can facilitate group alignment, cooperation, and ultimately transformative governance.
