The Commission for Environmental Cooperation, though its generous support and advocacy, has been instrumental in helping the LEO Network expand from its roots in Alaska to both Mexico and Canada.
LEO's partnership with the CEC has accomplished a great deal in the last year:
- Creation of the LEO User Guide, accessible and searchable online via the leonetwork.org website. The User Guide is available in English, French, and Spanish.
- Creation of the LEO Informational Video, a 1-minute animated introduction to LEO, also available online in English, French, and Spanish.
- Establishment and training of three new LEO hubs: in Ensenada, Mexico; Victoria, British Columbia, Canada; and Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.
- And finally, translation of the LEO website and mobile app into French and Spanish.
All of this broadens the reach of the LEO Network: outside of the Alaska, outside of the United States, to non-English speakers, and to new knowledge holders.
We think the LEO Network has benefited tremendously from these enhancements and expansion.
