The Global Environments Network facilitates connections, exchanges and collaborations among event participants and resource people, building durable partnerships that guarantee the sustainability of the Network and impacts at multiple scales.


our events

Since the first Global Environments Summer Academy in 2011, alumni have returned to ensuing summer academies, regional academies and community exchanges, providing highly successful contributions as resource people and co-coordinators, and generating cross-cohort continuity.

Ideas borne from intense discussions held at GEN events have led to successful project collaborations. GEN members have also seized opportunities to engage in other settings, such as conferences and ad-hoc meetings, strengthening bonds while creating spaces for intellectual debate.

Through an ongoing project in Venezuela, project leaders are supporting efforts to alleviate malaria among Jotï, Eñepa and Piaroa, with the aim to rebuild these communities’ strong capacity to maintain their wellbeing.
