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.
