I have a close, eight year long professional history with WCN. Having worked in the development sector for 15 years, spanning over ten different countries, I can say that WCN has no comparison. Their dedication, professionalism, and ability to think and act strategically and creatively to improve the quality of environmental education in the Nepalese education sector is truly inspiring. The same goes for their work with community forestry economic development projects through climate mitigation and adaption initiatives. As we face the double crisis of biodiversity loss and climate change, the work that they are doing is more important than ever. I hope that you will get the experience to work and make positive change happen together with WCN.
