Youth in Landscapes (YIL) Digital Forum
What is the YIL Forum
The YIL Forum is a half-day, digital event shaped by the YIL community and the GLF, aimed at:
- Connecting like-minded young people, supporting knowledge-sharing and new collaborations;
- Sharing actions taken by youth around the world in restoration;
- Increasing the skills and knowledge of young leaders concerning restoration for a sustainable climate;
- Launching ‘Generation Restoration’, the YIL program for young people, organized in tandem with the UN Decade.
Why a Youth Forum
Young people around the world are increasingly taking action to create a healthier, more sustainable planet. A vital part of this process is the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration that begins in 2021. It will help stress the critically important link between restoring the Earth and the climate change crisis.
This half-day YIL event is a great chance to highlight the synergies between restoration and climate action, and throw a spotlight onto young people around the world who are working to restore the land and contribute to a sustainable climate.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
During the YIL Forum, young people joining online can participate in a variety of activities, including daily digital challenges, online networking, live workshops, a daily morning show and much more.
Everyone can be part of the YIL Forum. However, participation in the online networking program and the live workshops are limited, so apply as soon as possible!
Please also make sure to register for GLF Bonn Digital Summit 2020, an unprecedented experience to feed your mind on the important topic of Food and Livelihoods.
Develop yourself both personally and professionally: volunteer! In a world full of ego, values such as compassion, empathy, and the simple desire to dedicate hours for a common good are often left aside. When you volunteer with GLF, you’ll work with fellow leaders to promote a message that’s essential for our time – and for the next generation. We’ll be counting on you and your skills to make sure it all shakes out in the best way possible.
