MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

What is PUP Consortium's unique niche WITHIN conservation?

  • We are equally concerned with natural and cultural heritage
  • We have a unique structure and business model designed for our global task: we are completely global and virtual (and thus need almost no overhead to fund). We have volunteer and pay-by-project membership and staff (thus need no staff overhead)
  • We have a specific focus: to strengthen managers and communities so they can manage their heritage in an adaptive, learning way
  • Learning is a central pillar to our structure and focus which is why we conduct our own research and publishing. (See our seminal book, The Future Has Other Plans: Planning Holistically to Conserve Natural and Cultural Heritage)


What kind of people are PUP Consortium members?

  • They strongly support the conservation of natural and cultural heritage, whether in small parks and museums in their home town or World Heritage Sites around the world.

  • They are dissatisfied with the way heritage is currently been managed: unimplemented plans, low levels of community participation, simplistic thinking, and inability to adapt quickly to a complex, changing world.
  • They are frustrated with money, time, and hope being wasted on highly technical management approaches that do not improve heritage conservation; they sense a broken system but aren’t necessarily sure how to fix it.
  • They appreciate out-of-the-box thinking for both the technical and social sides of management such as community development, public participation, dialogue, inclusion, power sharing, adaptive co-management, organizational learning, horizontal and holistic, integral organizations.
  • They support alternative approaches that draw on many fields and on real research rather than just sentimentality, intuition or flavor-of-the-month ideas.


Commitments of PUP members

Because there is so much to do and because no one on our staff has a salary, we envision an active membership, where all our members commit to three things:

  • Support and implement the PUP principles and values
  • Keep up to date with their annual contributions
  • Seek ways to help us further our cause of a more holistic approach to natural and cultural heritage management
