LT&C supports the East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum as a partner and would like to encourage young members of our network from the East Atlantic Flyway region of coastal birds to have a look at the following announcement (or forward it to other Youth who might be interested):
Join the East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum 2021!
“Taking off #ForNature from Africa to the Arctic”
Hosted by Youth Engaged in Wetlands, the Migratory Birds for People Programme, the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat, and the International Wadden Sea School, under the theme “Taking off #ForNature from Africa to the Arctic”, the objective of the East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum is to set the scene for coordinated youth engagement across the East Atlantic Flyway for increased intergenerational communication and cooperation for the conservation of wetlands and migratory waterbirds.
This online event is developed for young people between the ages of 18 and 30 years old to explore youth engagement in the conservation of wetlands and migratory waterbirds along the East Atlantic Flyway.
The COVID 19 Pandemic has pushed us to think differently about gatherings and to develop opportunities to connect virtually. With the success of the first ever Flyway Youth Forum developed by Youth Engaged in Wetlands and the East Asian Australasian Flyway Partnership using virtual tools, the organizers are keen to replicate and scale up the experience to the East Atlantic Flyway and its youth.
