SAVE THE DATE

Last November we hosted our very first Youth Symposium, with young people across the world of conservation sharing their stories.

We’re delighted to announce that our Youth Symposium will be returning Friday 11 November and Saturday 12 November 2022. We are inviting young people from across the country to share their experiences, knowledge and passion for conservation!

We want to reach out to a wide range of contributors and participants from young researchers, activists, youth led organisations, youth boards, policy makers and young leaders.

CALL FOR PRESENTERS

We’re looking for inspiring young speakers to share their experiences through workshops and presentations with audiences at the symposium. We invite you to share your knowledge and expertise on youth engagement in conservation, good practice in strengthening youth involvement and empowering young people to take positive action for nature.

The deadline for workshop and presentation submissions is 12 August 2022. All confirmed speakers will be finalised and notified by 26 August 2022. Successful speakers will be offered a free place at the symposium. Please note that we cannot guarantee that all presentation and workshop submissions will be accepted.
