The Frankfurt Spring School will take place for the third time in 2019 in cooperation with the Goethe University and the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Among the 30 participants there will again be 6 fellowship holders from the foundation KfW Stiftung who will be able to gather knowledge in the fields of Nature Conservation Work, Accounting, Project Development and Intercultural Competence during the four-week course.
This year, the six fellowship holders come from Brazil, Guyana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Tanzania and Indonesia. Building on the input of the Spring School, the aspiring park managers will develop their own project ideas for their respective conservation area following the course. At the end of the intensive training and additional individual mentoring, a jury evaluates the applications. Three projects are selected and receive funding of up to EUR 50,000.
