2nd European Conservation Finance Boot Camp

13 May - 17 May

We are happy to announce the 2nd European Conservation Finance Boot Camp from 13th until 17th May 2024 in Angofa, Romania. The event is hosted by Fundatia ADEPT and Eurosite as part of the project LIFE ENPLC (https://enplc.eu/).

The Conservation Finance Boot Camp is a training format for mid-career professionals about innovative and effective financing strategies for land and resource conservation, restoration, and stewardship. Conservation Finance Boot Camps have been organised annually by the US-based Conservation Finance Network (https://www.conservationfinancenetwork.org/)  in a collaborative effort with the private sector, charitable foundations, public agencies, conservation groups, and academic institutions (www.conservationfinancenetwork.org). The 1st European Conservation Finance Boot Camp (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvqoIdoQpLs) took place last year in Italy.

Location
The 2nd European Conservation Finance Boot Camp will take place in Transylvania, one of Europe’s last traditional landscapes.  The region is known for its low-intensity agriculture and its abundant flora and fauna. The historic Transylvanian Saxon villages and their surroundings are now seen in Romania and globally as a high-priority area for conservation and for understanding how the preservation and restoration of such areas can be financed.

We will convene in Angofa, a village located in an unspoiled valley near Sighisoara, where Fundatia ADEPT is developing a model farm to show how innovation and new markets can support traditional communities and small-scale, sustainable farming.
