Innovation & Collaboration
Innovation and Collaboration Forum
Connect with park-focused scholars, park practitioners, Indigenous researchers, and associated protected areas partners. Explore collaborative projects and research opportunities, generate dialogue and facilitate connections across Canada and beyond. Join a pan-Canadian conversation about innovative and effective approaches to park and protected areas management.
Pan Canadian Co-Mentorship Program
Built on the significant desire for parks professionals to connect across jurisdiction and across Canada, the Canadian Parks Collective is connecting parks and protected areas professionals, academics, and practitioners as co-mentors (peer-to-peer). This free, year-long program requires participants to commit to a pre-program webinar, a (minimum) monthly call with their co-mentor, and are encouraged to apply to become a mentor in the Project Learning Tree #MyGreenMentor program for youth in the conservation sector.
Crowdsource a Project Idea
The Canadian Parks Collective Parks and Protected Areas project crowdsourcing tool is a way for the community to work together by suggesting ideas for projects of mutual interest – and joining in if you see can help or want to collaborate! Project Ideas may be combined, refined, or removed as they unfold. Suggested topics do not constitute a guarantee of success nor of funding.
