::YUNGA ALERT:: World Forestry Congress 2015

Youth Engagement at the World Foresty Congress 7-11 Sept.2015

Do you care about forests? Do you care about climate change? Do you care about animals and plants? Do you care about yourself and your friends’ future? This is your opportunity. Get engaged!

The good news is that the presence and involvement of the global youth community has been prioritized at the XIV World Forestry Congress, which offers a great opportunity to engage in scientific and policy deliberations like never before.

Young people will be engaged throughout the Congress process, providing vital contributions that stem from debates among peers as well as inter-generational discussion on the most pressing issues facing forests and forestry. Get involved as we liaise with professionals to design pathways for sustainable development and to maintain and enhance the many benefits, products, goods and services that forests provide.

Join us in Durban to express your concerns and ideas, and help build a sustainable future for forests! If you’re coming to the XIV World Forestry Congress, join us at the following events:
