Earth Train provides the tools, networks and knowledge for young people to be leaders in biological and cultural conservation.
Earth Train Foundation, a U.S. not-for-profit organization established in 1990, has been active in Panama since 2001.
We promote biocultural renewal—that is the practice of creating sustainable communities and institutions in harmony with nature and enriched with biological and cultural diversity.
We accomplish this through:
Peer-to-peer teaching and networking
Coaching and mentoring
Creating learning organizations
Cultivating biocultural business
Our volunteer and intern programs put promising young people in contact with the mentors and the experiences they need to shape their futures as biocultural leaders. At the same time, they have the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on local communities and environments, as they develop and execute a variety of projects in concert with local communities and conservation experts.
