What is ANESCo?

The ANESCo (Alumni Network for Ecology, Sustainability, and Conservation) group was established in 2013 for exchanging information and international project-related cooperation between established and ongoing experts focusing on the fields of sustainability, ecology, and nature conservation worldwide. After fruitful seminars in 2013, 2015 and 2017 in Germany and Nepal, ANESCo has now more than 80 members coming from all continents.

Dealing with the challenges of environmental and sustainability issues require problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. ANESCo emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the alumni of Global South, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. ANESCo project seminar brings together alumni of International Master programs in Germany, not only to exchange knowledge and discuss the important experience in their own fields but also to learn from other disciplines and regions while building new ties between already active and future experts and leaders. 

The topic of the seminar is driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of partnership with local stakeholders. About 35 alumni from all over the globe participate in this biennial seminar. Participants of the seminar will share knowledge and learn about the theory and practice of certain topic, such as "Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)" in 2019. The objective of the seminar is to enable the ANESCo members to understand the process of project proposal development in the context of sustainable development and to carry out active and self-organized group work in order to analyze the activity and develop a publication with the result.
