London's Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference
The UK Government is hosting a landmark international conference on illegal wildlife trade (IWT) in London. The conference will bring together global leaders to help eradicate illegal wildlife trade and better protect the world’s most iconic species from the threat of extinction. Y4WC have teamed up with the organizers of the conference, to give our network of early-career conservationists a unique opportunity and a chance to activley participate in this event.
Not only are we taking a delegation of national and international youth to observe the conference sessions and witness global policy in action, we are also organizing a side event at the conference on the 11th of October at 4:45 pm where we will be hosting a panel discussion around the themes of the conference and exploring young people’s roles in solutions to illegal wildlife trade.
If you are not there in person don’t worry, we will be taking our entire network along with us, and invite them to engage in the conference virtually via our social platforms. We will be sharing all behind the scenes from the days in London and giving our perspective on the outcomes of the talks. Follow along, grow your knowledge around current wildlife conservation issues and have your say in the discussions.
