The inaugural Salazar Center International Symposium on Conservation Impact will establish a forum to explore progress on conservation challenges across North America. It will convene thought leaders from the arenas of conservation policy, practice, and research around the theme of landscape connectivity. Together, we will explore opportunities to connect and collaborate across urban and rural, public and private, and wild and working lands; how landscape-scale conservation is critical to environmental and human health; and what opportunities and challenges exist surrounding large landscape conservation and stewardship.
The Center will also announce an incentive prize to generate new ideas and programs for conservation impact at the symposium. The prize is one way in which the Salazar Center is pursuing bold new incentives to advance impactful, community-based conservation partnerships that support conservation at scale.
Carlos Martiel is a Cuban performance artist whose work provides heavy criticism on the ethics of the world, its history and its behavior through provocative and raw performances that explore the nature of existence, social barriers and cultural traditions.
At the heart of Martiel’s work are powerful performances that raise questions about the way different societies have treated ethnic minorities and outsiders throughout history.
But these works also defy established values and draw attention to other pressing issues, such as the political and culturally motivated censorship and persecution present in many countries across the globe, particularly in his native Cuba. To this end, he uses physical expressions that evoke rituals and ceremonial procedures.
