Commission on Education and Communication


CEC Regional Vice-Chairs and Outreach coordinators

What are CEC members doing, and how can you become involved?

In every aspect of society, working better together starts with better listening for real conversation. Networks of people are where the conversation begins. The meeting can be face-to-face in a conference center, on a cell phone or in cyberspace. Internet technologies are opening up tremendous new opportunities for social networking. And there’s more to explore in multi-media and new media for interactive learning.In every region, CEC members are actively engaged in advancing the IUCN vision for conservation and sustainable development. Join CEC in building effective regional networks to catalyze change. 

Please contact the CEC Regional Vice-Chairs and Outreach coordinators in your region.
