Welcome to the new Biodiversity Caucus!
Last month, the RCEN created a new caucus to provide better coordination and support to the many RCEN members working on the issue of biodiversity. Evolving from the successful Biodiversity Working Group, the Biodiversity Caucus is already hard at work on some interesting projects. More info on the Biodiversity Caucus’ homepage

Breathing New Life into the Youth Caucus
The RCEN is excited to announce that a group of dedicated youth and staff are in the process of reviving the Youth Caucus! The participation of over 10 youth delegates at the 2009 AGA has laid the foundation for a strengthened youth presence in the Network.
The Caucus is currently seeking nominations for its new Steering Committee (see this week's headlines). Visit the Youth Caucus webpage to learn more about how to participate and to view our new “youth recruitment” video.
RCEN Living History Tour Moving to the Maritimes
After spending a few days in Ottawa and meeting with RCEN staff, Dylan and Garrett are now in Quebec City and will be biking towards New Brunswick tomorrow. So far, they’ve interviewed 10 past and present members of the Network and have recorded their stories, insights and thoughts about the RCEN and its unique role within the environmental community in Canada.
