Support the environmental work of our branches by becoming a member of IDEAS For Us.

The IREX Fellows are top tier scholars chosen by the United States Department of State funded program called IREX (International Research & Exchange). They spent a four month term, living in Orlando, Florida and working at IDEAS HQ to learn best practices and have now returned to their home countries as lead organizers of IDEAS.
