IGEL is based, in part, on the belief that solutions come from a diversity of people representing the various needs, opinions, ethnic and cultural communities, bases of power, and economic resources of the people of Georgia.
IGEL encourages participation from:
- civic groups
- concerned citizens
- educational institutions
- environmental organizations
- neighborhood groups
IGEL is an educational and personal development experience. It enhances participants’ leadership skills and improves their understanding of complex environmental issues.
While IGEL does not attempt to create a consensus of opinions or promote a specific issue, participants are better prepared to take action and make a difference in the lives of others.
