Dogs and People Workshop
Sat. 3 December 2016, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm AEDT
Following 2015's successful Dogs and People Workshop, AMRRIC, Vets Beyond Borders and The University of Melbourne are pleased to again collaborate to host:
Dogs and People: Mastering Stakeholder Engagement for Sustainable Impacts.
One Health professionals (including public health and animal health and management professionals) with an interest in dog population management projects in developing communities are invited to attend.
The date and location (3rd of December, The University of Melbourne, Parkville) have been deliberately selected to allow those planning on attending the International One Health EcoHealth Congress (oheh2016.org) to additionally participate in this pre-congress workshop.
With an overarching theme of stakeholder engagement, the day will be split into three sessions, focusing on ground-level engagement, collaboration and high-level engagement. Through case studies relevant to Australian and international dog population management projects, participants will:
- develop their ability to effectively identify and engage stakeholders;
- learn strategies for maintaining and leveraging stakeholder engagement;
- understand how to sustain outcomes through a cultural fit;
- continue to strengthen the network of dog population management practitioners established at the 2015 Dogs and People Workshop.
At the workshop, local and international invited speakers will share their learnings from decades of experience in dog population management programs, at all levels of engagement. Additionally, 5 minute 'speed session' presentations will give participants the opportunity to speak about the lessons learnt from their own projects, allowing others to build on their experience. Participants interested in presenting are encouraged to contact Andrea Britton, Bonny Cumming or Mark Stevenson, or use the Eventbrite contact form under the Organiser Description below.
Following feedback from the 2015 workshop, ample time has also been built into the program to allow participants the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided; participants with dietary requirements should notify the organisers by the 27th November 2016.
Registration fees will be used to cover workshop-related expenses e.g. catering, printing etc.
Registration closes 27th November 2016, or earlier if venue capacity is reached.
