The Commission has a diverse membership in terms of disciplines, cultures, languages, geographical regions, spiritual traditions, ages and gender, bringing diverse perspectives, values and experiences to bear in debating, analysing and promoting issues of concern to its vision and mission. Membership includes some of the world’s foremost conservation and sustainable development practitioners, natural and social scientists, and traditional indigenous community leaders.
Members are encouraged to form thematic groups, task forces and regional nodes to implement the CEESP programme and address emerging issues. CEESP promotes collaborative work with strategically chosen partners.
Membership is voluntary. Prospective members must submit an application through the Commission Membership portal and wait for approval from the CEESP leadership team. See this video tutorial for further instructions.
