2020 RCP Network Gathering Program

The health and safety of our RCP community is our top priority. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to transition this year’s RCP Gathering to a completely online format. Although we aren’t able to join one another in-person, our virtual program will allow us to have meaningful, results-oriented discussions on conservation while protecting our speakers, attendees, presenters, moderators, staff, and their families.


We hope you’ll join us, your colleagues, fellow conservation practitioners, and new friends to learn, share, and be inspired! This year’s theme, Resilient Regions and Communities, addresses the climate crisis and supports the scaling up of our most impactful strategies and tactics to help the communities in our part of the world work toward a healthy, equitable, and resilient future. 

Stay tuned here for additional information and workshop dates leading up to the Gathering.

This year’s RCP Network Gathering Program will begin with a virtual Story Map walk-through of our program in early October, offering context and background for our extended online program. Online workshop webinars will begin late October and will follow a thematic track, designed to build awareness of challenges and solutions that could guide scalable actions to be advanced as a network. These workshops lead to the Virtual Gathering on November 19. Finally, to build consensus on the most promising solutions and strategies that could be advanced by specific networks, partnerships, and initiatives in the next two to three years, we will (virtually) convene a Day focused on Implementation and Action in early 2021.
