Bridging Humanity: Unveiling the Untold Stories of Hunting and Conservation

Storytelling and connecting with people are an essential part of all communications. In this session – Bridging Humanity: Unveiling the Untold Stories of Hunting and Conservation – we will explore the different approaches to storytelling and how to best communicate your message to a wide range of audiences.

Robbie Kröger, Founder and Executive Director of Blood Origins, will join us to speak about emerging communications mediums, having launched a critically acclaimed podcast series on hunting and conservation.

Providing insight on how to reach and mobilise a core engaged audience will be Madeline Lindhorst, who will speak about her experience as the Chief Editor of the German Hunting Magazine, Jaeger Magazine.

Introducing and moderating the session will be Dr. Zoltán Kovács, Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Relations of Hungary and Head of the Hungarian CIC Delegation, giving a unique perspective on communicating key public policy as a state representative.

Bridging Continents: North American Insights for Global Conservation

Recent history has shown that North America takes a unique and effective approach to conservation, one that could have countless applications in other corners of the globe.

Bridging Continents: North American Insight for Global Conservation will bring together a number of key players in North American conservation, who will delve into its different aspects and how they could be translated overseas.

Shane Mahoney, President of the CIC Policy and Law Division, will introduce and moderate the session, sharing his experience as a world-renowned advocate for the North American Model of Conservation.

As part of a panel discussion, we will explore how to enact action as a non-profit together with Corey Mason, CEO of Dallas Safari Club (DSC) & DSC Foundation, and Tony Wasley, President of the Wildlife Management Institute.

We will also look at conservation through a public lens, thanks to the input from Ron Regan, Executive Director of the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies.

And with his experience as the Director of Government Affairs at Safari Club International, Benjamin Cassidy will give context on how to best create synergies between the different stakeholders involved in conservation, both public and civil.
