The Youth in Landscapes vision is an inclusive and equitable world where people come together to collaborate across boundaries, sectors and generations to achieve sustainability for our global and local landscapes. The Youth in Landscapes Initiative contributes to this world by uniting and empowering youth (aged 18-35 years) from diverse backgrounds around the world to have a voice, and affect positive change in their landscapes and livelihoods. The Initiative is a partnership between the International Forestry Students’ Association (IFSA), Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) and the Global Agroecology Alliance (GAEA). Together these organizations represent over 18,000 young people working and studying in agriculture, forestry and agroecology.

There are a number of ways you can help shape the movement. The YIL is providing support in Bonn through pavilion co-ordinators, participants, social media ambassadors and more. Apply for Pavilion Coordinator HERE and Participant HERE
