BSBCC has sent off two staffs from our Environmental Education unit (Gloria Ganang and Melynda Cheok) for a 4-day training workshop which was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Monday 11th to Thursday 14th March 2019 with a field visit to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre on Friday 15th March. The workshop was hosted by Free the Bears Fund, in collaboration with San Diego Zoo Global and support from the World Association of Zoos and Aquaria (WAZA). The training workshop includes lectures, seminars and practical exercises by recognized leaders in the field of social science and behaviour change, including Dr. Diogo Verissimo, Dr. Sarah Thomas, and Dr. Elizabeth Davis. In this workshop the participants was introduced to the processes of planning and evaluating educational programmes, including; (1) Strategic planning for designing an educational programme (including the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria conservation education standards), (2) Understanding key concepts in social science and behavior change, and (3) How to design and implement monitoring and evaluation of educational programs (including questionnaire design and other methods). A wide range of people participated from six nations and more than 10 different organizations represented. It was a great platform to networking and exchanging the works of the other organizations doing in conservation education.
