Since our founding in 2011, at the Global Environments Network we have acquired a vast archive of resources and learning materials from our summer academies, regional academies and community exchanges; as well as our newsletters, social media channels and via our ever-growing Alumni who regularly share publications, articles, book recommendations and much more with us. The GEN Research and Practice Pillar falls into four categories: GEN Toolkits, the GEN Resources Library, GEN newsletters and Alumni publications.

GEN TOOLKITS

more

We are developing toolkits, which will be practical ‘how-to’ guides and bodies of research, with tried-and-tested resources and tools for those working for social and ecological justice and positive change. 

GEN Toolkit #1: ‘Weaving Grief, the Body and Transformative Justice’ is an 18-month collaboration between GEN (Nessie Reid) and Camille Barton – founder of The Collective Liberation Project. The Research and Development Phase of this toolkit began in February 2020 – which is currently in process – of which Camille has been writing regular journal entries sharing her insights and lived experience. To read these entries and find out more about Toolkit #1, click here. 

We are currently in the process of designing, and fundraising for more Toolkits; to start in late 2021, exploring the themes of communicating and truth-telling in times of polarity and overcoming oppression and working with race, gender and difference. Please get in touch if you would like to know more and get involved.

RESOURCES LIBRARY

more

The GEN Resources Library includes reading and resource lists from previous GEN events, as well as content shared by our members and networks of support and collaboration. The library is an ongoing work in progress, and is ordered by either a GEN event cohort i.e. GESA 2018, or a themed reading list i.e. ‘Black History Month Library’ or ‘Climate change adaptation’. We are always looking to expand our pedagogical breadth and depth, and challenge and explore alternative worldviews and approaches, so we welcome new entries.

GEN NEWSLETTERS

more

To foster learning, mutual support and collaboration among GEN members, we circulate frequent GEN in Action newsletters to share opportunities for engagement, as well as new and inspiring resources relevant to our members. Whilst GEN in Action newsletters are exclusive to members, we also share selected information, including announcements on upcoming GEN events, with our wider community through periodic public GEN Community newsletters.

ALUMNI PUBLICATIONS

Here, we share publications co-authored by GEN members, who connect through the commonalities in their reasonings and beliefs.

The growing importance of shrinking wetlands: a tale of three cities

Three GEN members, Piyush Dhawan, Montserrat Lara and Sana Mezoughi, who connected as participants during the Global Environments Summer Academy 2018, co-authored this article, which featured in Biodiversity – a Journal of Life on Earth, Volume 19, 2018.
