What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Global

The Global Program complements the work of our regional programs by addressing key policy and conceptual challenges through linking grassroots stewards and activists with global institutions, thought leaders and policy processes. We support opportunities for impact through new media; collaborations between Indigenous Peoples, local communities, scientists, international agency officials and policy specialists; and programs to enable Indigenous Peoples and local communities to network, travel and train together in order to share what they are learning at a local level
