CoalitionWILD is building collaborative and cross generational relationships between emerging environmental leaders and veteran conservationists.

The CoalitionWILD Global Mentorship Programme provides sustained engagement, avenues to build confidence and capability, opportunities to learn from challenges and celebrate successes, and works to bridge the gap between generations. Their Mentorship Programme is about a collaborative and equal partnership between participants built on mutual trust and respect.

Participants in the Programme are not required to complete a project, task, or reports. Rather, both the Mentor and Mentee will be encouraged to set personal and professional goals for their 12-month experience in the programme with their partner during their first two meetings. CoalitionWILD will place an emphasis on co-learning, co-creating, and co-mentoring throughout the programme, highlighting the importance of cross-generational interactions and conversations.  

The next Mentorship Cohort will run July 2020 through June 2021. Learn more about the programme, eligibility, and how to apply on their website:

WildHub Community Manager, WildTeam UK

My background is mainly in species conservation, education and capacity development. For several years, I researched mother-young interactions in gorillas and chimpanzees, in captivity and the wild. After that, I worked for three years in Indonesia, where I developed and implemented youth ambassador and community engagement programmes on local and regional scales. These programmes are aimed at building conservation capacity and promoting stewardship. I currently conduct my PhD research on the professional development of conservation professionals and work as Community Manager at WildHub.
