Garry Oye, Chief of the National Park Service Division of Wilderness Stewardship, and Margaret (Peg) Rees, Executive Director of UNLV Public Lands Institute and Interim Vice Provost for Educational Outreach, are collaborating to initiate development and delivery of a new initiative: International Protected Area Exchange (IPAX) at UNLV. We invite faculty and their students to take part in the program's development and future.
Our idea is to positively impact protected area uses, management, conservation, sustainability, and advocacy around the world. The transdisciplinary IPAX approach will empower participants through learning experiences rich in dialogue, information, investigation, and reflection. IPAX will include field experiences, seminars, and extended physical and virtual learning environments for international and national participants.
Please attend this exciting Visioning Session to share input, experiences, and innovative ideas ... and make new connections. We are interested in learning about: the UNLV human capital and resources that may be available to contribute to IPAX, how IPAX can contribute to you and UNLV, and your thoughts regarding protected area management approaches, needs, issues, and audiences.
