The Global Workshop for Indigenous and Local Communities: Biodiversity, Tourism and the Social Web took place October 14, 2012 at the 11th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity.

The workshop was sponsored by the Government of Spain and co-hosted by the Indigenous Portal and the Convention on Biological Diversity and UNEP. Communications guru Ron Mader (founder of Planeta.com) facilitated the workshop and guided participants through exercises and games designed to upgrade participants' core skills using the social web.

The workshop engaged nearly 50 CoP 11 participants in Hyderabad and colleagues around the world with new networking tools that spotlight indigenous and local community tourism services which conserve traditional culture and local biodiversity. Many of the examples were drawn from the participants in the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award.

Participants were asked to bring their laptop computer, digital camera, smartphone or other mobile device that connect to the Web. Many of their contributions appeared in real-time during the workshop.

The Hyderabad workshop was open to registered participants for #COP11. Participants were also invited to join us online via the social web via livestream video and an active Facebook event page.

The event venue was perfect. Free wifi and livestreaming connected participants in the room with colleagues around the world.

Background
  1. 1. Decision X/40, paragraph 6 the Parties requests the Executive Secretary to continue to convene, subject to the availability of financial resources, regional and subregional workshops aimed at capacity building for indigenous and local communities in support of the enhanced implementation of the Guidelines on Biodiversity and Tourism Development under the Convention on Biological Diversity through enhanced marketing strategies and web-based technologies, for dry and sub-humid lands and for mountains and to report the results to the Working Group on Article 8(j) and Related Provisions for consideration at its seventh meeting.
  2. 2. Further to this, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) held a series of regional and sub-regional workshops aimed at capacity building for indigenous and local communities in support of the enhanced implementation of the CBD Guidelines on Biodiversity and Tourism Development with the view to support and strengthen indigenous and local initiatives in this area.
  3. 3. The Workshop aims was provided some of COP 11 participants, specially indigenous and local community representatives, with information about new technologies, including internet and web-based tools in order to allow indigenous tourism operators to make a better use of technology and promote tourism activities that are taking place in indigenous and local communities worldwide. The training will support the development and management of tourism activities designed to preserve biodiversity and sustainable tourism as well as to promote communities' culture richness through digital marketing, by focusing on cultural and biological aspects of indigenous tourism products and on the unique experience offered to the potential visitors. In addition, the creation of a network to interconnect and exchange information will help the participants to surpass challenges and develop and implement best practices.
  4. 4. Against this background, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, in partnership with Indigenous Portal and Planeta.com, and with the financial support of the Spain Government, proposed the holding of a global workshop aimed at capacity‑building for indigenous and local communities in support of the enhanced implementation of the CBD Guidelines on Biodiversity and Tourism Development (decision VII/14, annex) with the view to supporting and strengthening indigenous and local initiatives in this area.

Emails to Participants

October 12 - Greetings and Saludos

This email is being sent to the registered participants, partners and organizers of the Workshop for Indigenous and Local Communities: Biodiversity, Tourism and the Social Web. Just a few cyber housekeeping matters:

1) Our workshop is scheduled for 9am-3pm on Sunday, October 14. For those who are participating in the face-to-face workshop in Room Contact Group III, please bring a laptop, smartphone or other device that connects to the Web.

2) Please register for the social web channels you wish to master. I put high priority on Facebook and Twitter. If you tweet about the workshop, please include @ronmader in your tweet so that you catch my attention. If you are on Facebook, please introduce yourself on the event page -- https://www.facebook.com/events/384791341585946

3) Bonus points if you register for an account on Slideshare -- http://www.slideshare.net -- and if you would be so kind, please favorite and comment on my keynote presentation --
http://www.slideshare.net/planeta/socialwebcop

Let me be clear -- the advantage of Facebook is that it is ridiculously popular. Of those who have registered for the workshop, 100% have Facebook. Engaging on the event page is a quick and easy way of getting thing rolling. The advantage of Twitter is that helps spread the word to a more diffuse crowd. It's easy to favorite and retweet messages and thus create a viral campaign in favor of common interests. The advantage of Slideshare is that it allows public access to documents and powerpoint presentations AND allows the author to make changes and then upload revisions. For every powerpoint I've seen at #COP11, I'd wish they were on Slideshare.

Our event wiki page -- http://planeta.wikispaces.com/cop11web -- includes relevant links for the various social web channels we'll be exploring together. You do not have to register for this wiki, but you might be tempted to create one of your own. If you would like to help edit the Planeta Wiki, just ask me during the workshop and we'll figure out how to make this mutually beneficial.

Questions? Just ask. For those attending the Sunday workshop in person, there will be games and gifts and surprises to make the session as friendly as possible. For those participating online, we'll try to provide a live stream and our wiki page includes time conversions for wherever you are on the planet.

Kind regards, Ron Mader


Misc

This training is designed to support the development and management of tourism activities. We'll review the current status of marketing traditional tourism in a digital age as well as the challenges of interpreting the value of biodiversity.

designed to preserve biodiversity and sustainable tourism as well as to promote communities’ culture richness through digital marketing, by focusing on cultural and biological aspects of indigenous tourism products and on the unique experience offered to the potential visitors. In addition, the creation of a network to interconnect and exchange information will help the participants to surpass challenges and develop together best practices to be implemented

focusing on communication tools, aka the social web, used to connect and promote indigenous and local community tourism ventures.

Highlighted will be traditional indigenous knowledge related to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, as well as indigenous and local community ecotourism ventures.

How do we maximize scarce resources?

Off topic but relevant to social web training, have a look at Clay Shirky's latest TED video
http://www.ted.com/talks/clay_shirky_how_the_internet_will_one_day_transform_government.html

I love the part about cooperation without coordination. The existing web platforms can animate collaboration in ways we couldn't dream a decade ago.

For those participating online: Please be patient as we work out any potential kinks of livestreaming portions of the workshop!

  • One of the eight recognized Vavilovian centres of origin and diversity of crop plants, having over 300 wild ancestors and close relatives of cultivated plants.
  • India ranks among the top ten species-rich nations and shows high endemism.
  • India has ten bio-geographic zones and has four global biodiversity hotspots (Eastern Himalaya, Indo-Burma, Western Ghats and Sundaland).
  • Varied edaphic, climatic and topographic conditions have resulted in a wide range of ecosystems and habitats such as forests, grasslands, wetlands, deserts, and coastal and marine ecosystem Himalayan ecosystems.
  • Mangroves in India account for 3% of the global total with rich species diversity. Sunder bans is the largest congregation of mangrove forest in the world.
  • Wetland ecosystems ranges from high altitude cold desert to hot and humid wetlands in coastal zones with rich flora and fauna. 115 wetlands and 40 lakes identified under national program and 25 wetlands of international importance under Ramsar Convention.
