2022 GLF LAC YOUTH WEEK

Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) are home to some of the world’s most vibrant biodiversity and cultures. The region is also increasingly struggling with the impacts of the climate crisis, from drought in Chile and Argentina to more intense hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico. But young people are taking matters into their own hands: protesting injustices, challenging the status quo, creating safe spaces, and restoring their landscapes. Join them!

What is the GLF LAC Youth Week?

The GLF LAC Youth Week is hosted by the Youth in Landscapes Initiative in collaboration with the LAC Youth Project Team and the Global Landscapes Forum. 

Featuring young activists, scientists and other change-makers across the region, the first-ever GLF LAC Youth Week will highlight efforts to build an inclusive future, spark a discussion around new development paradigms, and create spaces for youth leadership. 

Join us for a week full of inspiring sessions, discussions on contemporary topics, job opportunities, and virtual tours of restoration sites.

Who is the GLF LAC Youth Week for?

If you are a student or young professional with a strong interest in landscape restoration and climate justice efforts for the LAC region, then the GLF LAC Youth Week is for you. 

Young people living in LAC and youth from the LAC diaspora are especially encouraged to participate in the digital regional dialogue and share their experiences and visions for their landscapes.
