I have wonderful experiences sharing experiences and working together with PCI Media Impact since 2010 and recently on the incredible movement together 'NatureForAll' during the IUCN's World Conservation Congress in Honolulu. It was the best pavilion and best place to be in the Exhibition hall. They are first of all form a great team with huge entusiasm and use the powerful tool 'creative storytelling that really change people's life and their attitude towards sustainable development. PCI Media Impact is one my favourite partner when it comes to communication and outreach!

I worked with PCI media impact in May 2016 as a volunteer under their Wild For Life Campaign that aims tackling illegal trade in wildlife.I must say it was quite an illuminating experience for me, as I got to learn about other endangered wildlife like the Pangolin save for the elephant that I knew before as well measures to protect them.

Learning is the world's greatest challenge. Using entertainment is an excellent way to reach those who don't always have access to schools or universities. In the western developed economies we are constantly learning from entertainment - but often one that does the opposite of PCI Media Impact - as it spreads violence and fear. PCI Media Impact is unique in its ability to work on the ground - to develop programs and content with the people concerned. Its staff are amazingly dedicated to the causes they work for and not afraid to take on the most difficult challenges of HIV, Ebola, domestic violence, gender discrimination, climate change and nature conservation.

Heart. Substance. Experience. Dedication. Proven success. This is how I would describe the people and the work of PCI-Media Impact. They work tirelessly with a relentless attention to the smallest details, always ensuring the story they tell is supported by research and serving to educate and heal their intended audience. Their groundbreaking work on #ISurvivedEbola saved thousands of lives and calmed a nation. This campaign delicately honored those suffering and lost, while it artfully empowered and gave hope to the living. Storytelling at its BEST!

Over the past few years I have been so fortunate as to work with PCI Media Impact in conjunction with Foncet, a conservation foundation that protects the El Triunfo Reserve in Chiapas, Mexico. PCI Media Impact has been a huge resource for bringing awareness to the public about this reserve and other environmental and social issues through their involvement in radio and supporting a theater play created for educating children through entertainment.
The employees at PCI are always a pleasure to work with and are very enthusiastic about what they do. Their passion for getting involved in world-changing projects is what makes them such an important group of people who are always looking to improve communities around the world and create sustainable templates for future growth.
I look forward to working with them more in the future and am excited to see what projects they have in store for this coming year. Their dedication to each of their projects is apparent through each one's success and I am sure they will continue to be an important presence within non-profit organizations.

This year I had the opportunity to intern at PCI and everyday at the office has been a learning experience. The team's dedication, rigour and programmatic diversity is inspiring. PCI's work in the field of behaviour change and in empowering communities has re-ignited my passion and commitment to environmental justice and community development.

In 2008, when I retired from UNICEF, PCI Media Impact asked me to fill in as interim Director of Programs. Over the next 10 months I witnessed first-hand what a wonderful organization it is, despite the fact that it had fallen on hard times. Since I left, it has been remarkable to witness the organization's rapid turn-around. New, dynamic leadership and wise guidance on the part of its board have combined to grow PCI Media Impact into a truly global organization that uses innovative Entertainment Education and Communication for Development methodologies to make the world a better place. Their model is rights-based, participatory, respectful of people's dignity and culture, and relies on evidence to measure results, across an array of burning issues at the core of the Sustainable Development Agenda. They have gained the trust of communities and donors, harnessed new and traditional media to promote justice and social change. My communication consulting company is proud to partner with CEO Sean Southey and his team and would recommend them to organizations and governments seeking to make a difference for people and planet. -- Robert Cohen, Director, Rain Barrel Communications LLC
