As the world gears up for a decade of biodiversity and restoration action, it is important to create spaces where young people can build on valuable knowledge from experts, identify the linkages between climate, biodiversity and healthy landscapes, as well as exchange ideas about best practices and action in their own landscapes.
In line with these matters, four weeks before the GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference 2020 the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL), together with the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), the Wageningen Centre for Development and Innovation (WCDI) and Youth4Nature, shaped a unique learning experience, named “Biodiversity: A Digital Journey” for students and young professionals interested in becoming leaders in biodiversity and climate action. With digital group work, networking sessions, inspirational talks, and skills-based short training, participants joined this interactive journey toward discovering more about biodiverse landscapes, climate action, biodiversity and finance, and nature-based solutions.
