In this session, we will analyze different scales of power dynamics, ranging from grassroots organizations, to regional, national and global levels.  We will also examine different sectors, including environmental, social, and economic areas. Furthermore, we will discuss how change can be affected through various scales of influence, including community initiatives.  We are seeking papers that address these topics. The organizers’ papers will cover access to forest resources, economics of conservation biology, and youth education and empowerment for advocacy for water and habitat conservation.


We are interested in papers addressing any of the above themes.  Interested participants should send a 250 word abstract to Alison Ormsby ( and David Martin ( by November 19.  Participants will be notified by November 22 and must register for the conference by December 1.
