 “I see the role of our Commission as advancing our collective capacity to use the tools, ideas and creative approaches of education and communication to help create the social norms, values, organizations and behaviors that will help us realize the vision of IUCN and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Sean Southey,
Chair, IUCN Commission on Education and Communication 

CEC members are professionals from around the globe who volunteer their time and talent in pursuit of sustainability. Our 1,100+  members work together to strengthen IUCN and the wider conservation community. As CEC members, we support IUCN to unlock the potential of networks to connect conservation with human values, and to motivate conservation values, norms, behaviours and actions.

In our Mandate for the period 2017-2020, the Commission makes it a priority to help broker valuable strategic and non-traditional alliances. We aim to design generative processes and create environments where people can think, talk and act differently with one another, in order to find new, creative pathways to success. 

What are CEC members doing, and how can you become involved? Start by contacting the regional representative of your region, the leaders of specialty or working group you'd like contribute. Share your ideas, stories or contact CEC members via the Union portal, cectalksnature blog or other platforms.
