Recent Panorama solution affords exciting opportunities to share our research about inclusive conservation in Denali

The Denali team partnered with their broader ENVISION collaborative and IUCN to publish a Panorama solution about inclusive conservation in Denali. Panorama is a partnership initiative to identify and share examples of inspiring, replicable solutions across a range of conservation and sustainable development topics, enabling cross-sectoral learning and inspiration. Our recently published solution affords exciting opportunities to share and reflect on experiences in the Denali region, increase recognition for successful work, and to learn how challenges in Denali compare to those around the globe.


The Denali region of Interior Alaska faces social and environmental pressures related to rapid landscape change. Although the communities there are tight-knit and linked by their shared connection to the area, local stakeholders can feel excluded from regional decision-making to address resource management issues. One potential pathway toward more inclusive decision-making is having residents learn from and adapt to one another in discussions about landscape change, thereby strengthening underrepresented voices through collective knowledge building. Community deliberation can be challenging to get started, but social learning is a conservation tool that can facilitate shared dialogue based on understanding the many and diverse values related to public land management through community deliberation. This solution is based on the concept of socially inclusive conservation, which aims to represent how people value nature to improve protected area management.
