The virtual IUCN One Nature, One Future Global Youth Summit will be kicking off on April 5th, 2021. The Summit (5 to 16 April 2021) aims to strengthen connections between young environmentalist leaders and their existing global networks, encourage interdisciplinary learning, provide a space for broader storytelling on conservation, and add momentum to growing youth movements for nature and climate. The event is free of charge.

During this unique time, virtual spaces open the opportunity for greater inclusivity. Youth from around the world are invited to participate in youth-led capacity building workshops, networking events, and contribute to an outcome document to be delivered to IUCN’s World Conservation Congress in 2021. 

Young people are the engine of change. To realize the world we want, it is critical to engage and empower the voice of youth and give them access to decision-making processes.

The Global Youth Summit is organised in partnership between the IUCN Secretariat, its six Commissions, and several Member organisations. It defines “youth” as those aged 18 to 35. However, in order to allow for meaningful intergenerational collaboration and exchanges, people of all ages are welcome to participate.
