Stewarding visions of justice and restoration

Conference Hall

In a world that is on fire and underwater at the same time, young people around the world are leading efforts for radical transformation. From the mountains of Costa Rica to the rivers of Bangladesh to the drylands of Madagascar, young landscape leaders are reconnecting with their land and culture, fueling a historical climate movement, mobilizing across sectors and policy levels, and actively restoring their landscapes. And with that, they are restoring hope for a world where we all can all live in dignity and in harmony with nature. But what do these people need from the rest of society to turn their visions into reality? Join this session co-created by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative and the Global Landscapes Forum to hear the stories of young experts, and reflect on how we can all create positive and meaningful change in the world.
