From 5-7 November 2018, in Madrid, Spain, the ELCN will organise its second International Workshop that will deal with incentives for private landowners to engage in conservation activities on their land. Its overarching theme is the question: Why do landowners conserve their land?
This workshop is jointly organised by Fundación Biodiversidad, Eurosite and NABU.
The motivations of landowners to conserve their property can be manifold, ranging from emotional place attachment to personal history, general environmental ethics and values, the feeling of social responsibility, financial considerations or compliance with environmental regulation. Interestingly, studies have shown that financial motivations often rank at the bottom of the list of reasons for private land conservation.
