The virtual IUCN One Nature, One Future Global Youth Summit kicks off April 5th, 2021. The Summit will strengthen connections between young leaders and their existing global networks, encourage interdisciplinary learning, provide a space for broader storytelling on conservation, and add momentum to growing youth movements for nature and climate.
During this unique time of history, virtual spaces open the opportunity for greater inclusivity. Youth from around the world are invited to participate in youth-led capacity building workshops, networking events, and contribute to an outcome document to be delivered to IUCN’s World Conservation Congress in 2021.
Young people are the engine of change. To realize the world we want, it is critical to engage and empower the voice of youth.
The IUCN One Nature, One Future virtual Global Youth* Summit is not just a Summit, it is an experience!
This is our chance to help shape a healthier, more resilient post-pandemic world from the city centre, to rural communities, to the most remote protected areas.
The Global Youth Summit defines “youth” as those aged 18 to 35. However, in order to allow for meaningful intergenerational collaboration and exchanges, people of all ages are welcome to participate. Participation in the Global Youth Summit is entirely free of charge.
