Whether you join online or in-person, we welcome you to YIL.
The Youth in Landscapes (YIL) Initiative is a global movement of young people who have committed to living and breathing the landscapes philosophy – collaboration, diversity, and collective action. We welcome everyone aged 18-35 years to join us. Whether you are a student or young professional, whether you work in agriculture, business, or geography – this community needs you. 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 20,000 young people working and studying in agriculture, forestry and agroecology.
