In this session of the Unearthodox Future of Conservation Learning Festival, we warmly invite you to join us as we showcase a few innovative projects that use Web 3.0 tools for conservation. The speakers will share their journey of utilising digital disruption for positive impact, including why they chose a Web 3.0 tool as the best solution to their conservation problem.

The session seeks to empower conservation practitioners with a curious mind with the knowledge and motivation to embrace new digital technologies in their organisations and the wider conservation sector by presenting clear practical steps and inspiring real-life examples.



Jorn Dallinga : Programme Manager at WWF Netherlands, Jorn heads the Forest Foresight initiative which is using AI and large spatial datasets to predict and prevent areas most vulnerable to illegal deforestation.

Fiona Korwin-Pawlowski : Chief Strategy Officer at Project CETI (Cetacean Translation Initiative), an interdisciplinary nonprofit organisation and TED Audacious Project using machine learning to help  translate the communication of whales off the island of Dominica.
