Within the frames of the Life with bears – 26th IBA Conference we are offering capacity building opportunities for students. Interested students can apply to “shadow” a session chair during the conference. To take part in this opportunity, you need to commit to working with a session chair to learn what is required for communication with session presenters, sitting on stage during the session, and writing up a summary of the session for the IBN conference section. The student will work closely with both the session chair and if necessary the IBN editor for the session summary article. The conference organizers will pair students with session chairs based on interest and commitment of the student.
If you would like to have the opportunity to learn what is is like to chair a session at an International Association for Bear Research & Management conference, write a session summary for the IBN, and get to work with a professional bear biologist, contact the IBA Secretary Jennapher Teunissen van Manen at email@example.com indicating your field of interest (conference topics). Please indicate in the subject line of your email: Student Session Chair Capacity Building.

Items tend to be bear-related but outdoor gear, services, and other items are also welcome.
Please do not bring bear parts and check to make sure item/contents is not banned from import/export (e.g. wood, rock, alcohol) before bringing them.
