Cheryl Charles is an innovator, entrepreneur, educator, author and organizational executive. Throughout her career, she has been recognized for her leadership, collaboration and communications skills. Among her many interests, she has demonstrated a life-long commitment to the importance of getting children into the out-of-doors—for their health, success and happiness. She helped establish and is President and CEO of the Children and Nature Network (C&NN) (www.cnaturenet.org), co-founded in 2006 with author Richard Louv. The C&NN has launched a campaign to Leave No Child Inside, inspired in part by the exceptional response to Richard’s book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder. She is also a member of the Steering Committee for the World Conservation Union’s (www.iucn.org) Commission on Education and Communication, a worldwide effort involving 80 nations and more than 1000 non-governmental organizations and businesses. Named a “new patriot” by author Mark Gerzon, in his book A House Divided: Six Belief Systems Struggling for America’s Soul, for her pioneering work to bring ecological concepts into the mainstream of schooling, Cheryl served for close to 20 years as founding National Director of what remain the two most widely used environment education programs in North America for K-12 educators, Project Learning Tree and Project WILD, receiving numerous awards for her leadership. As comfortable in a corporate board room as in the woods, Cheryl worked from 1997 to 2007 in a senior role in the financial services sector, most recently as Senior Vice President of Communications, Research and Strategic Planning for BITS, a non-profit industry consortium of 100 of the largest financial institutions in the United States. In addition, Cheryl is Managing Partner of Hawksong Associates (www.hawksongassociates.com), a consulting firm specializing in organizational development and diffusion of innovation.

Cheryl has a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Washington, with a specialty in factors affecting the achievement of minority youth.

Arturo Curiel Ballesteros is Director of the Environment and Human Communities Institute and Professor Investigador Titular at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. He contributed his leadership to the first major WCLN meeting at the regional level. Arturo links his enthusiasm for the WCLN to the seventh Millennium Development Goal—ensure environmental sustainability—which he views as "a calling for all mankind and to experts on the matter".

As a university researcher with a background in soil science research, environmental education and environmental health (water, forests and human health), Arturo knows that his region has a wealth of relevant experience to build on. "I am certain that Mesoamerica has many experiences to share. Mesoamerica also has the power to gather the best conservation knowledge available to offer an integral insight when decisions in the region are made; decisions that often face both technical and economic challenges," he says

Early CEC experience with the second Ibero-American Environmental Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico, and participation in the IUCN World Congresses and several CEC program prepared Arturo for the task of organizing the WCLN event. "The idea of doing a meeting where specialists and important actors in this field would gather came about because we needed to look for the best alliances for this project," he recalls. Three subjects emerged as priorities: water, land use (including wildlife corridors and biodiversity), and strengthening informed social participation in the management of natural resources.

Arturo joined CEC in 1997 and has been involved in its WCLN project since its creation. "I gladly accepted the invitation to join the CEC because the World Conservation Union (IUCN) impressed me as an organization that has experts from virtually everywhere in the planet, and I learned about its support for Environmental Education and the World Conservation Strategy, which were very appealing to me."
