Accelerate Learning Through Peer Networks and Exchanges
Learning exchanges and other events that expose local community members and conservation professionals to one another and to tangible examples of conservation successes and failures are powerful tools that provide both immediate and long-term benefits. Well-designed and executed exchanges accelerate learning and provide participants with experiences that have diverse, profound, and lasting effects on people and conservation programs.
Peer learning networks are especially powerful tools to accelerate learning, sharing, and action at all scales, and they facilitate continuity for long-term conservation. For examples of the many ways networks are used, see Scaling Up: Networks Amplify Impact and the three case studies.
