As an initiative of Yale University’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, the Environmental Leadership & Training Initiative (ELTI) supports the efforts of people to design and implement an array of land use practices and initiatives that conserve and restore tropical forests and native tree cover in human-dominated landscapes that are rich in biodiversity. Three ELTI training program alumni will participate in a panel discussion, moderated by Gillian Bloomfield, ELTI’s Online Training Program Coordinator.
