The First Workshop of 2022 Kicks Off CSF Indonesia’s Marine Fellowship Program Batch 3
The fellows in our Marine Fellowship Program, now in their third year, continue to make a huge impact on local marine policy and national fishery policy across Indonesia. The ongoing fellowship is a partnership between Yayasan Strategi Konservasi Indonesia (YSKI, or CSF Indonesia) and Fakultas Perikanan dan Ilmu Kelautan (FPIK IPB) University, and we recently held a two-day workshop for our Marine Fellowship Program 3 fellows to create a space to share their research accomplishments and plans with their peers.
In January 2022, YSKI held this MFP3 workshop in Surabaya, with the theme “work in progress” to help facilitate the development and learn more about the preliminary findings of the fellows’ research. It also provided a space for fellows and mentors to exchange ideas on the continuation and improvement of their activities, to write about their ongoing research results, and for YSKI to support fellows in sharpening and strengthening their individual research plans for the next phase of the program.
The workshop, which is a part of the ongoing Marine Fellowship Program, was a platform where all fellows and mentors could meet to share their research progress with each other. It was attended by the 12 fellows, their research teams, and mentors both in-person and online. The sessions were productive and beneficial for our fellows’ research. Creating a space for mentors and fellow researchers to have in-depth discussions proves to be one of the most important tools in conducting excellent research.
In 2022, YSKI and FPIK IPB will hold another workshop and training to support our fellows’ research. We believe that with well-monitored and supportive programs, our flagship MFP 3 will be able to nurture impactful and beneficial researchers as they work towards the Marine Sustainability of Indonesia.
This Marine Fellowship Program is made possible with generous support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
