‘Apps’ training seminar – programme now available!

1st February, 2013

EAI is pleased to announce that dates and venue have been confirmed for our next training seminar ‘The Uses of Apps and New Media in Protected Landscapes’. It is to take place on Thursday 21st March 2013 in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

What’s the seminar about?

With the advent of smart phones and web technology a new set of possibilities has opened up for people to engage with protected landscapes through the use of Apps. It has also opened up new ways for protected landscapes to provide services to visitors, to carry out their own work and even for fundraising.

This seminar will share interesting and innovative examples of the use of Apps from across the protected landscape family in fields such as tourism, environmental education, digital payback and biodiversity monitoring. It will involve Apps developers and new media specialists to explain what is possible now and in the future. As ever, EAI will bring you experience from its European network, and speakers from Belgium and Germany have been confirmed their participation. We are also very pleased that the academic and research community will be participating.

How will I benefit from the seminar?

Your knowledge of this subject will be enhanced through the sharing of expertise from across the UK and mainland Europe; a greater understanding of the possibilities afforded by Apps and new media; networking opportunities with your counterparts from the Atlantic Isles region, as well as Apps developers, academics and tourism specialists.

Who should attend?

Staff from national parks, AONBs and other protected landscapes with an interest in the use of new technology in tourism, environmental education and heritage interpretation, digital payback, citizen science and biodiversity monitoring; tourism practitioners; Apps developers.
