Dear coaches and friends of the Conservation Coaches Network!

Approximately every two years we come together to connect, share innovations, sharpen our skills, and uplift our spirits to support conservation practitioners and projects to do better, smarter conservation all around the world.Rally2018_FairmontResort

Responding to community requests to foster international participation and the generous offer of support from CCNet Australia, our board has decided to host our next global gathering in Australia, in the beautiful Blue Mountains around Sydney!

We are looking forward to seeing you there from April 30th – May 3rd, 2018!

Our online registration process will be open from January to mid-March. Click here to register.

Our theme this year will be “Building Resilience and Working Together”. The Rally planning team is working on an interesting program with help from many coaches and friends of our Network to prepare a set of great sessions. We will post updated materials here, please check them out:

WHERE? Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains, located 1.5 hours away from Sydney, Australia. Check out the Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains.

How do I get there from Sydney?

WHEN? The event will take place from April 30th – May 3rd (plan to arrive on April 30th and leave in the late afternoon on May 3rd – sessions will be held from May 1 -3).

HOW MUCH? The table to the right shows per person costs. Hotel fees for the duration of the Rally (three nights) cover lodging, breakfast and taxes. The registration fee will go to CCNet to help pay for materials, meals and other event costs. Participants will be responsible for covering their own travel expenses and incidentals.

We will work hard to raise funds to help coaches get to the Rally and your support will be crucial to achieve this.
