The 2019 NSCF Forum that took place on 28 – 30 May 2019 at Goudini Spa Resort in Rawsonville, Western Cape. 130 participants representing universities, museums, research institutes and government departments attend this second Forum.

What made this Forum unique was its novel engagement method that involved a radical shift away from the traditional one-way communication style of presentation of talks delivered at conferences, towards the use of creative and participative facilitation methodologies. This included participant-led group discussions, activities, and the screening of biodiversity conservation related film and documentaries. This allowed for plenty of time for direct one – on – one interactions and group engagements amongst the participants. _SANBI article
