‘Powerful, participative and complex’: Participants share their Feedback on the Blue Planning in Practice Training Course

‘Powerful, participative and complex’: Participants share their Feedback on the Blue Planning in Practice Training Course

Written by Tabitha Stimpfle and Carolin Hoffmann, Blue Solutions Initiative

The Blue Solutions initiative has developed four modular and highly interactive marine training courses (referred to as Blue Training Courses) which have been implemented in over a dozen countries and world regions in the past four years. All Blue Training Courses are designed for practitioners, technical staff and decision makers responsible for coastal and marine planning and management from different social sectors, such as government, civil society, and aca-demia. Especially the demand for support of marine spatial planning initiatives remains high at the international level, which is why the so-called “Blue Planning in Practice” (BPiP) training course has been inquired and conducted most frequently so far.

 

 

But who are the people taking part in the training courses? What do they learn from the courses, how does their work benefit from the different training elements, and what do they like in particular? We have interviewed a number of participants of the Blue Planning in Practice course: Watch this video, listen to what participants think about the course and get inspired!
