The upcoming annual seminar of the VTB (Vereniging Tropische Bossen) will be held on the 27th of September, in Utrecht. This year, we would like to invite you to join us on an interactive workshop on 'Companion Modelling'. Several international experts will be guiding us through an innovative method and will show you its practical value and uses in the field. 

We will explore one of the possible models, called 'ReHab'. "It is often assumed in natural resources management that communication helps solving the ‘tragedy of the commons’ by way of shared knowledge and better coordination. ReHab is a role-playing game, both cooperative and competitive, exploring the role of knowledge production and communication for the conservation and management of natural resources through experiential learning."

We are very proud to be able to present you this program. It is an unique opportunity to be part of this workshop, and will give you direct insights and experience with a method that is used more and more often in all kinds of (conflict) situations in the field of nature conservation and resource management. 

We encourage you all to subscribe for this day! The deadline of subscription is September 23th. For more information and registration, click here.

Even if you are not a member of the VTB, you are most welcome to the event. You can also easily subscribe as a member in order to take advantage of our reduced member rates, but this is not obligatory.

We hope to see you all on the 27th of September!

Kind regards,

The VTB Studiedagcommissie.
