Knowledge is a key component of the IUCN Congress and the Conservation Campus offered a unique chance to take advantage of cutting-edge expertise. The commitment and scope of specialists who provided training form a skills pool of such breadth and diversity that it did not fail to create one of the richest learning experiences.

Taking place within its own complex at the Lotte Hotel, Jeju during extended periods of up to a full day, the Conservation Campus conveyed the true atmosphere of a study ground. This set-up allowed for a thorough examination of subjects relevant to IUCN’s Programme.

With a maximum of 50 participants, the training sessions provided possibilities for interaction with the trainer and among trainees who share similar motivations.
