Park management and conservation professor appointed to IUCN Commission

By Jeffrey Skibins

Jeffrey Skibins, assistant professor of park management and conservation, has been appointed to a three-year term on the IUCN Commission on Education and Communication.

The Commission on Education and Communication's mission is to enable the global community to effectively communicate and use knowledge to create positive conservation change.

As the oldest commission of IUCN, the Commission on Education and Communication adds value to the important issues the union discusses by bringing together expertise and lessons learned from diverse communication fields, including strategic communication, conservation psychology, social and behavior change communications, social marketing, storytelling, among others, to encourage nature-based organizations to connect effectively with people.
