Think Landscapes – Think Youth? Learn how and why the two go together, and catch a glimpse of what youth leaders plan for 2015 in this short video.
The ‘youth in landscapes’ initiative is a new project uniting top young forestry and agriculture innovators - and beyond - (ages 18-35) to tackle global land use challenges and create solutions using innovation tools, leadership development and intercultural skills.
This initiative is powered by a group of passionate young professionals led through IFSA : the International forestry students' association and YPARD : the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development - 's work, GAEA : the Global AgroEcology Alliance, and the outstanding support of CIFOR - the Centre for International Forestry Research.
We learnt a thing or two through the youth session at the 2013 Global Landscapes Forum, the youth discussions at the Forests Asia Summit 2014 and the youth program at the 2014 Global Landscapes Forum. We can only do better in 2015!
