Podcast | Long-term solutions for people and wildlife | Anna Hixson (Institute for Ecological Civilization)

How can we tackle some of the biggest challenges facing us as a global society, for the betterment of people and wildlife?

Can we rebuild and transform economic systems in favour of human and ecological wellbeing, and what does the future look like for protected areas?

This forms part of the energetic discussion with today’s guest Anna Hixson.

Anna is the Associate Director, Projects and Foundations Relations at the Institute for Ecological Civilization, or EcoCiv for short.

Anna talks us through the work of EcoCiv, and what it’s like to do her role day-to-day.

Having worked previously in HR, we also discuss her top tips for applications, along with her advice for aspiring conservation starters and switchers on how to get going in the sector.

It’s an exciting, wide-ranging and informative discussion. Enjoy.
