As national focal points, CEC National Activators will work closely with the CEC Regional Vice-Chairs. As volunteer members of CEC, they will lead, innovate and collaborate in the three broadly defined areas in our mandate:
- Facilitating the co-creation of sustainable solutions;
- Creating strategic communication platforms;
- Leveraging new learning for professional development.
National Activators will contribute to CEC commitments to delivering results to the IUCN 2009-2012 programme of work. They also will promote longstanding CEC commitments to advancing the international Conventions through Communication, Education, Participation and Awareness (CEPA); developing the World Conservation Learning Network (WCLN); and supporting the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD).
