World Forestry Congress: Regional Workshops

With the approaching of the World Forestry Congress and a draft concept of the XV WFC Youth Declaration, we would like to invite you to participate at one of the regional workshops for Africa, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Europe/North-America. 

During these regional workshops, there will be discussions with individual youth experts and youth organizations active in the forest sector in detail: I) Problems that they face engaging in the forest sector; II) Individual or organizational solution strategies to these experienced problems; and III) Necessary external support that they need from governmental agencies, the private sector, NGOs or academia to overcome experienced problems.

Overall, the regional workshops and the resulting XV WFC Youth Declaration are a central pillar of youth engagement at the XV WFC. And these workshops will provide participants the chance to connect with other individuals and organizations and to make their problems, needs and solution approaches politically visible! 

The outcome of the regional workshops will be analyzed by UNFF MGCY and translated into a draft XV WFC Youth Declaration. 

The regional workshops will last for about 3 1/2 hours. French and Spanish translation support will be provided for the regional workshops of the African and Latin American regions. 

Please sign-up for the respective regional workshops in order to access the meeting link.
