Leadership camp for sustainable forests: an experiential field-based learning with local communities

  • Baan Huay Hin Lad Nai, Changwat Chiang Rai, Thailand

Introduction:

This leadership training aims to awaken and further enhance the leadership capacities that are already possessed by each individual. The training focuses on understanding the importance of leadership in today's challenging context, and in identifying and strengthening leadership knowledge and skills needed to bring about positive social change.

To maximize the learning process, participants will engage and interact with the leadership mentors, community members and leaders, and women and youth groups. Participants will have a chance to observe and get involved in various daily activities of the local people in the camp area. It is designed with interesting learning pathways intertwined with local knowledge and practices.

To bring about change, the next generation of leaders for sustainable forests need to be equipped with capacities for dealing with current and future challenges in the changing forested landscapes including the role of community forestry in climate change.

The training camp is in Huay Hin Lahd Nai, a village located in a National Reserve Forest area in Chiang Rai Province, surrounded on all four sides by large pieces of forest. The Karen community living in that village has spent more than twenty years to prove that Karen people can co-exist with and help preserve forests. They proved that they are able to manage community forest resources in a sustainable manner with their cultures and beliefs that respect nature, their adjustment towards waves of global change, and sharing of benefits among people in the community.

Course objectives

  • Enhanced leadership capacities in the context of sustainably managed forests;
  • Shared and learned from representatives of different countries on the practice of sustainably managed forests;
