Achieving the goals of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration requires efforts at multiple scales and by multiple actors, through inter-sectoral and inter-generational approaches. In the last decade, youth networks and organizations have increasingly taken action and demonstrated to the world the power of youth leadership. According to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration’s strategy, youth involvement will be key for building a global restoration movement. But how can we leverage on existing youth movements and networks (especially in a time of COVID) to ensure ecosystems are restored, and youth leadership is amplified?
