Ballot Measures: Leveraging Public Support for Land Conservation
American politics may feel highly partisan, but there’s one thing voters of all political stripes seem agree on: local and state funding for parks and conservation. On November 6, voters approved 46 of 54 measures -- an 85 percent passage rate -- creating over $2.8 billion for the protection of water quality, new parks, natural areas and working farms and ranches across 21 states. Ballot measures are instruments of direct democracy that allow voters to directly shape public policy in the voting booth. Measures at state and local levels have historically brought critical funding to land and water conservation across the country. This webinar will get you started with the tools needed to lead or support ballot measures. Learn from Will Abberger, the Director of Conservation Finance for the Trust for Public Land, as he presents concepts and case studies that will help you chart a path toward new opportunities for your community.

Communicating the Path to Sustainability Through Natural Capital Accounting
The conference will address these questions as they apply to three thematic areas, namely the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, communicating among users and producers, and data technologies for creating and communicating natural capital accounts. Each day will include plenary sessions and concurrent sessions with breakout groups that focus on cross-cutting issues. Speakers and break-out group moderators will be leaders in academia, government, and business from around the world. The goal of the conference is to bring together producers, current and potential users, and communications experts of natural capital accounting in a non-technical setting to craft a narrative that is simultaneously compelling, accessible and true to detail. To ensure success, conference participants will be experts in their field, with considerable experience in their respective domains.
