The Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program (http://nature.berkeley.edu/beahrselp/) offers a unique learning opportunity for environmental professionals from around the world to gain expertise, enhance skills and broaden perspectives on environmental and natural resource management and leadership.

Three recent participants in CNR's Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program recently sat down to discuss the environmental challenges they face in their home countries, and the impact they hope their Berkeley summer session will have on their work.
