Nature-based Solutions & Young Professionals: Perceptions and Integration

IUCN CEM, in collaboration with Ficus Peru, Youth in Landscapes, International Forestry Student Association (IFSA), ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, gaia-liNc, and Youth4Nature, are hosting an event at the World Conservation Congress’ NbS Pavillion: “Nature-based Solutions and Young Professionals – Perceptions and Integration“. The session targets young professionals and youth.

The session aims to present young professionals’ (YP) perceptions on the topic of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) and discuss their current and future involvement in NbS activities, particularly on the Global Standard for NbS. The event will be divided into two parts:

  • Presentation of the results of the survey among YP, conducted by IUCN CEM Young Professionals Network,
  • A panel discussion will take place, with several representatives of environmental organisations on NbS and Global standards, based on the outcomes of the survey.

If you attend the WCC in person, we encourage you to consider participating in the session. Otherwise, you may follow the event online, as it will be live-streamed.
