Vienna, March 27, 2022. As the climate crisis intensifies and biodiversity loss accelerates, the work of nature conservation non-governmental organisations is becoming increasingly urgent. To tackle this matter, Impact Hub partnered up with the Luc Hoffmann Institute and the IUCN CEESP* to launch the Future of Conservation NGOs Innovation Challenge.
The pace of change is driven both by external and internal forces. Structural and systemic issues are at play within the sector, which are impacting conservation effectiveness. To remain relevant and legitimate, in addition to effectively dealing with the present global ecological crisis, conservation NGOs need to radically shift.
The three organising institutions driving the challenge are now inviting changemakers to apply for the chance to reimagine possible futures of conservation NGOs and to explore what their new roles can be in effectively approaching and managing nature conservation.
