GEN Community Countries


Global Environments Summer Academy alumni

Ninety seven (97) distinguished Masters and PhD students and professionals from a wide variety of academic disciplines were selected from around the world for GESA, held over 5 years. Comprising speakers of 79 different languages from 54 countries, they have in common exceptional academic backgrounds and broad practical experiences, who have the capacity to become environmental leaders who impact academia, civil society, the private sector or government.

One hundred and thirty (130) Indigenous environmental leaders from over twelve First Nations have gathered during NACELE workshops, sharing innovative methodologies, examples, strategies and tactics to strengthen sovereignty and regenerate traditional knowledge.

Resource People

The Network’s resource people include outstanding academics, professionals, artists, and activists who together represent an extraordinary diversity of backgrounds and experiences. To ensure continuity in mentoring and to allow personal relationships to develop organically, resource persons usually participate in our summer and regional academies for at least one week, some even staying on for the duration of the course.
