New Social Compact
One of the outcomes of the IUCN World Parks Congress 2014 will be the drafting of a New Social Compact, through which principles and actions to change human behaviour, shift political will and define a new approach to achieve successful and socially just conservation will be articulated., During the stream sessions, dialogues will be facilitated by the New Social Compact team to examine and respond to the key lessons, opportunities and threats being articulated by the streams. The dialogue participants will be gathered from diverse global constituencies, including protected areas staff, policy makers, Indigenous Peoples, artisanal fishers, scientists, philanthropists, religious leaders, media and other specialists, rights-holders and stakeholders. The dialogues will be designed to represent this diverse global community. With professional facilitation, the participants will identify the main issues to be fed into the New Social Compact to sustain the planet and its finite resources.
