In August and September 2010, the GEG Project initiated and sponsored five regional events on governance in China, Argentina, Uganda, Nepal, and Ethiopia. Led by young environmental leaders in those countries who attended the 2009 GEG Forum in Glion, these consultations aimed to generate genuine engagement in thought and action on global environmental governance in all the regions. Involving stakeholders in different parts of the world in the governance debate is important for successful solutions, since different models are functional in different contexts and all perspectives are needed for designing flexible environmental governance systems for the future.
