|Aim:||The aim of the Leaders in Conservation Education of the CollAsia 2010 programme project is to bring innovation and change to the way that conservation education is practised in Southeast Asia by maximizing the potential of leading professionals in the region. Now that the current CollAsia2010 series of activities, supported by the Getty Foundation, draws to a close, the final activity is a forum to assess what has been achieved and how we can build upon those successes for the future. This is crucial because as CollAsia2010 enters its final phase, ICCROM and SEAMEO SPAFA are committed to ensuring that the programme’s results are sustainable and have a long-term positive impact beyond 2011.|
The objectives of the Forum are to:
|Participants:||Past participants from CollAsia2010 training activities are invited to attend. Other interested parties from within and outside Southeast Asia shall be informed of the event and their participation is most welcomed. The travel costs to Manila, accommodation and subsistence costs during the forum of up to 22 participants will be covered by the Getty Foundation, SEAMEO SPAFA, ICCROM, and the National Museum of the Philippines. Registration for the forum is free of charge.|
|Featured Speaker:||Professor at UMD and consultant to the World Trade Association, Patricia Marshall will speak on her efforts to model change through enterprise. She was a primary participant in the funding and leadership of several startups focused on conservation. For example, she organized the immigrant community in large cities to create eco-friendly businesses like green dry cleaners. Her most successful venture was a small carpet cleaning NYC service. Starting with a borrowed van and a Brooklyn backyard operation, the business flourished into an enterprise with 25 employees and a reputation for excellent, on-time service. They now have contracts to regularly clean the carpets of several mid-town hotels and the business continues to expand via word of mouth. Patricia will also address the opening ceremony.|
