The call for applications is now open!

Since 2011, GDF has welcomed 96 emerging environmental leaders from 54 countries with backgrounds in academia, civil society, government, the arts and the private sector to be involved in this highly selective academy.

GESA 2018 will be held in Oxford (UK), in collaboration with the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute (ECI) and Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS), between 25 July and 11 August 2018. Under the leadership of Dr. Gary J. Martin, the Founder of Global Diversity Foundation and Director of the Global Environments Network, academic and community professionals from diverse backgrounds will be invited to share their current perspectives and practical work, and to learn from one another. Different resource people will join us throughout the academy to share their expertise and interact with participants.

Interested applicants are invited to fill in the application form by the 15th of March 2018.

Academy convenors will select 18-21 activists, professionals or students from around the world whom they believe have the capacity to become environmental leaders who impact academia, civil society, the private sector and government. We invite applications from candidates in the arts and humanities, natural sciences and social sciences – as well as those working in advocacy, law, media or policy – who focus on the relationship between environment and society. Applicants should be fluent in English and have at least a Master’s degree, although we make exceptions for individuals with undergraduate degrees who have significant experience in relevant fields.
