Program: Convening a Powerful Coalition

The goal of our Convening Program is to build the relationships that support the environmental and social changes required for resilient lands and people. We also want to increase collaboration and our collective ability to respond to challenges and rise to opportunities.

Community Conversations

Starting in March 2020, we have been convening conversations with different communities of practice: nonprofit executive directors, public land management agencies, stewardship and belonging, fire data compilers, communications and public affairs leaders, and more. These small group conversations provide opportunities for information sharing, brainstorming, problem solving, and relationship building. The topics and agendas are driven by our members’ needs and input. Two examples of community conversations are:

Public Land Management Agencies

What started with weekly zoom calls on Fridays at 4pm in mid-March 2020, senior leaders of public land management agencies from around the region gather regularly. Starting in the fall of 2021 we moved into the real world with field trips. 

Fire Data working group

Starting in April 2021, we have convened regular calls with professionals at nonprofits, public agencies, and companies who compile data about wildfire on the landscape. Watch the 2022 speaker series here.
