Project Report | Dec 3, 2013
Exciting Updates on our GESA Website

By Gary J Martin | Project Leader

2012 Alumnus returns as resource person in 2013

1 December 2013 marks the halfway point in our application period for the Global Environments Summer Academy 2014. We are pleased to report over 1,700 unique visits to our online application form, and we have received over 100 applications from 44 countries. The pace of submissions is set to quicken as the holiday season begins, and as the 15 January deadline approaches.

While we are receiving and evaluating the applications, we are expanding and updating the Global Environments website. There is a new page on GESA alumni achievements, featuring stories on Girma Kelboro Mensuro (Ethiopia), Katie Kamelamela (Hawai’i) and Aysen Eren (Turkey), with many more to come. Also under the Alumni section, we have an overview of all the projects funded through our innovation fund, ranging from a community-run training farm in Nigeria proposed by Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu (Nigeria) and Marie Wilke (Germany) to a recently-launched wellbeing initiative led by GESA 2013 alums Kaylena Bray (USA), Vanessa Reid (UK) and Yuki Yoshida (Japan).

We added a new section on the Global Environments Network, with an overview and pages on Community Exchanges and Regional Academies.  We have posted an initial description of the North American Community Environmental Leadership Exchange (NACELE), which took place in October in Capay Valley, California. You can find short descriptions of the first two regional academies, which are proposed for Central Asia and East Africa.

Our Facebook page has now surpassed 1000 likes, and we are posting images from GESA 2013 and NACELE, as well as updates about GESA alumni and resource people.

With the launch of our GlobalGiving campaign on Cyber Monday, 2 December, we are now looking forward to providing additional updates as our countdown to GESA 2014 continues.
