How can we harness the innovation and enthusiasm of young leaders to ensure sustainable conservation solutions? How can we ensure the transfer of knowledge across generations to make sustainability a reality?
Following Nelson Mandela’s call for youth leadership in conservation at the 2003 World Parks Congress, the World Conservation Congress in Barcelona is an opportunity to allow young people express their opinions, encourage intergenerational partnerships and help future leaders prepare themselves to address the complex global challenges of our world.
What will the world look like in 2050? How will a sustainable future unfold? IUCN’s Congress is a place to meet and join sustainable development ambassadors as they visualize ecosystems scenarios. We invite you to learn about and help chart the path to building leadership and capacity in the next generation of managers; contribute to achieving the vision of training 1 million new leaders for sustainable development across business, government, technology, civil society, and academia by the year 2030.
