FACILITATING EXCHANGES AND COLLABORATIONS AMONG SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS

The Global Environments Network (GEN) supports a network of people dedicated to social and ecological justice, healing and planetary wellbeing.

What do participants of our events carry home with them? How does their GEN experience influence their careers and lives as changemakers? Has it changed their ways of thinking and approaches as they strive to achieve environmental and social justice?

FIVE PILLARS OF GEN

GEN EVENTS

more

GEN events are designed to provide changemakers with the support and tools they need to put their aspirations into practice. Our summer academies, regional academies and community exchanges provide opportunities for participants to engage meaningfully with experts from other fields, to test and co-develop ideas to resolve socioenvironmental problems across scales, and to develop their vision and leadership in a network of peers.

GEN COMMUNITY

more

A collective leadership network, GEN is comprised primarily of event alumni and resource people: outstanding academics, professionals, artists and activists, who together represent an extraordinary diversity of backgrounds and experiences.

GEN PROJECTS & PARTNERSHIPS

more

Ideas borne from intense discussions at GEN events plant the seeds for future collaborations. Through both formal and informal projects and partnerships, GEN supports members’ innovative and collaborative work, creating mutually-beneficial connections with global networks of colleagues and organisations aligned to GEN’s values and mission.

GEN MENTORING

MORE

At the heart of our GEN practice is peer-to-peer learning and mentoring: an approach that acknowledges everyone has the potential to be both teacher and student. This horizontal way of being creates a rich environment for sharing and expanding knowledge and networking. GEN provides members with support tailored to their specific needs and personal and professional goals and aspirations.

GEN RESEARCH & PRACTICE

more

Academic and/or practical research and education tools and resources created by GEN members and partners: all open source. In 2020, GEN launched a new initiative to develop practical ‘how-to’ guides with tried-and-tested resources, and tools, targeted for those working for social and ecological justice and positive change.

GEN members draw on strong academic, professional and fieldwork backgrounds to develop practical actions – typically out of the public eye – that improve local livelihoods, resolve conflicts and restore environments. These inspiring efforts are benefitting their communities, their countries and potentially the world as a whole.
