Global Environments Network

The Global Environments Network empowers inspiring changemakers who are innovating solutions to apparently intractable environmental and social problems. It is a global action network with the goal of reaching thousands of people in over a hundred countries through regional academies and community exchanges, creating a powerful interconnected group of emerging environmental change makers.

Programmes

Since 2000, GDF has launched vibrant applied collaborative research programmes with indigenous communities in Mesoamerica, North Africa, Southeast Asia and southern Africa. In collaboration with local and national institutions, we provide training and advocacy to support communities as they design and implement their own initiatives to maintain local environments and enhance their livelihoods and wellbeing. At an international level, GDF promotes biocultural diversity through training, documentation and networking opportunities.
