Description

The IUCN Commission on Education and Communication (CEC) is one of six expert Commissions and forms an integral part of the work of the Union. The CEC is a network comprised of more than 1,200 experts world-wide and promotes effective communication and cutting-edge capacity development to create positive conservation change.

Combining modern technology, social media and international networks with traditional approaches such as face-to-face professional development sessions, CEC members promote two key ideas. First, everyone has a role to play in nature conservation. Secondly, education and communication are essential for positive environmental change. Working with experts from around the world, CEC showcases successful approaches to communicating for nature. Composed of professionals from a variety of fields — university professors, scientists, media representatives, filmmakers, communications and marketing consultants — CEC fosters collaborative partnerships in advocating for sustainability. Some of the diverse areas in which CEC members are active include capacity development, strategic communications, conservation psychology, social media, educational technologies, environmental information, environmental security, learning, leadership, and behavior change through community engagement. Details on the work of the CEC are accessible at http://cectalksnature.org and on the IUCN CEC website https://www.iucn.org/commissions/commission-education-and-communication

The candidate will coordinate and support the operations of the Commission in close collaboration with the Commission Chair, Deputy Chair and Steering Committee.
