Educating the Next Generation of Conservation Leaders
Nelly Kadagi, Director of Conservation Leadership and the Education for Nature Program, Global Science August, 2020
For 25 years the Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) has helped build the next generation of conservation leaders committed to protecting the world’s most biologically diverse places. Started in 1994 to honor the late Russell E. Train, founder, president, and chairman of the board of WWF, EFN provides financial support to conservation leaders in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, to help them gain the skills and knowledge necessary to address environmental challenges in their home countries. Since the program began, EFN has supported more than 2,700 individuals and organizations around the world, including Dr. Nelly Kadagi, WWF’s new Director of Conservation Leadership and the Education for Nature Program. In this webinar, Nelly shares her experience and her vision for the future of the EFN program.
