For Youth Engagement and Intergenerational Partnership

Do you want to support the IUCN in better engaging youth and collaborating across generations to achieve conservation outcomes? If yes, read on!

We want to make a big impact at the IUCN Congress in Jeju this September, by demonstrating that youth:
  • are engaged in advancing the IUCN mission,
  • are collaborating across generations to advance this mission, and
  • want to open up further avenues for young people to get involved in the work of the Union.

We encourage young and senior professionals from across all Commissions, partners, and friends to join us in our preparations for Congress, whether or not you are able to attend the event. There is a role for everyone to play!

You are invited to a Skype text chat meeting organized by the Task Force on Intergenerational Partnership for Sustainability at 14:00 GMT, Thursday, 5 July. The purpose of this meeting is to give a brief overview of Congress preparation efforts already underway and to form/supplement Working Groups to advance specific projects.

Working Groups will work/are working independently on:
  • Youth engagement and intergenerational workshop, including drafting of Action Plan, 2013-2016, and facilitating workshop
  • Creating Commission-specific Action Plans for 2013-2016
  • Visibility and networking before and at Congress, including promotion of the new IUCN Intergenerational Logo and other pavilion activities
  • Councilor campaign for young candidate, Caroline Seagle, including outreach to IUCN Member Organizations
  • Engaging all Council candidates to consider their stance on youth
  • Making bridges between Rio+20 and the Congress

Please take one of these actions by 4 July at the latest, based on your situation:
1) I am attending Congress, can likely participate in the 5 July meeting, and want to contribute to a Working Group. à Send a Skype contact request to dominicstucker. And send an e-mail to dominic.stucker@gmail.com with “One” in the subject heading.
