Summary

The Global Environments Network supports emerging changemakers by promoting peer-to-peer learning and communication skills training. Working from local to global scales, these leaders draw on superb academic backgrounds and inspiring field experiences to develop practical actions - often out of the public eye - that improve local livelihoods, resolve conflicts and restore environments. These inspiring efforts are benefiting their communities, their countries and the world as a whole.

Challenge

Emerging changemakers work in isolation without an adequate support network beyond their discipline, location or practice. They seek spaces where they can explore ideas with peers in a multidisciplinary process of sustained reflection. They yearn for the camaraderie of like-minded people facing similar challenges and look for opportunities to bring their ideas to a broader public. Bringing together changemakers fuels innovation and collaboration for positive transformation of a needy world.

Solution

The Global Environments Network provides platforms to diminish this isolation through peer-to-peer learning and sustained interactions. Through six summer academies, three regional academies and four community environmental leadership exchanges to date, more than 350 emerging environmental changemakers from over 60 countries have benefited with networking opportunities, communication skills enhancement and cutting-edge, multidisciplinary reflection.

Long-Term Impact

The Global Environments Network's highly interactive events and online collaborations convene changemakers in a global support network that fosters collective action while helping emerging leaders gain skills and funding to transform their communities and organisations. This powerful interconnected group of emerging changemakers continue to actively seek solutions to attain social and environmental justice, and strengthen wellbeing at scales from local to global.
