PROJECTS & PARTNERSHIPS

The Global Environments Network facilitates connections, exchange and collaborations among event participants and resource people, building durable partnerships that guarantee the sustainability of the Network and impacts at multiple scales. Ideas borne from intense discussions held at GEN events have led to successful collaborations. Members of the GEN community have also seized opportunities to engage in other settings, such as conferences and ad hoc meetings, strengthening bonds while creating spaces for intellectual debate.
