WWD 2017

 

Taking a stand for Wildlife Conservation and
Celebrating Young Voices on World Wildlife Day 2017! 

 

Three months into the formation of Y4WC, we are already making engagement moves and paving the way for early-career conservationsts to be more empowered and recognised in wildlife conservation. Aww Yeah!

As official partners of the 2017 UN World Wildlife Day celebrations for the first time, it was a big deal for us! Y4WC ran a campaign to highlight the positive conservation actions of youth and the importance of 'Listening to young voices'. Additionally, members of Y4WC were invited to talk at the United Nation's Head Quarters in New York as part of a panel on youth engagement in wildlife conservation.

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.
