Toko telo

Interactive online conversations

Sharing experiences from the front lines of community-led conservation

Join us for a new series of interactive online conversations, called Toko telo: Sharing experiences to foster better community-led conservation.

The events will each include a facilitated conversation with an international panel in English, followed by interactive workshops.

Toko telo


‘Toko telo mahamasa-nahandro’ is a Malagasy proverb describing how when cooking without a stove you need to bring three rocks together to hold a pot above a fire. The saying is understood to mean that in order to achieve great things you need to work together, taking different ideas from multiple people to make something that works well.

This concept is the inspiration for our new series of online interactive discussions championing diverse voices, perspectives and sparking creative solutions for the future of community-led marine conservation.
