Mission of CLN

The goal of the Conservation Leadership Network is to bring together diverse constituencies to forge conservation solutions on the ground! While the development and offering of training programs plays a major role in achieving on-the-ground results, CLN also meets its goals through sustainability consulting, technical assistance/capacity building, and the development of strategic innovative projects that prove to be ground-breaking and offer transferable strategies. We like to work at the nexus of the environment and economy, and look forward to expanding our partnership opportunities in 2011! Read more>>
