Buddy Experiment

Earth Charter International and HECT Consultancy, coordinated a "Buddy Experiment" that showed IPS in action at the individual level by matching 80 members of IUCN's Commission on Education and Communication (CEC) with youth counterparts drawn from member youth networks. These partnerships provided valuable feedback on the Buddy concept leading up to the World Conservation Congress. We hope to improve and replicate the Buddy Experiment among additional IUCN Commissions. For more information, read:

Ultimately, we believe that if the IUCN, as well as other organizations and individuals around the world, support, promote, and engage in IPS, it will greatly strengthen our common work toward a vision of a just, sustainable, and peaceful world.
