Join us to celebrate young voices on World Wildlife Day 2017 

As official partners of the UN for World Wildlife Day (March 3rd) this year,  Y4WC will be running a campaign to celebrate the positive conservation actions of youth and the importance of ‘Listening to young voices’. 

A core belief of Y4WC is that the world should ‘Listen to young voices’ not simply because youth are underrepresented in conservation and international conventions, but because we are already making positive impacts in our communities and may have new solutions and perspectives on conservation matters.



to make this campaign a success.

Let us know with a photograph or short video why you think the world should ‘Listen to Young Voices’, this can be a:

  • a reason why you think it is important to engage with the next generation
  • how youth inspire you in your own life to protect wildlife or the environment
  • or If you are a young conservationist you may choose to showcase your own actions in your community that positively impact wildlife.

Open to all ages, it can be as creative or as straightforward as you like.

The content can either be in English or in your native language along with the English translation.

Then either send it to us by using our online form or simply post it to your social media platforms own using the tags #Youth4Wildlife, #YoungVoices and #WWD2017 on March the 3rd.
