IUCN Youth Strategy 2022-2030
Young people are the future. We need their help and engagement, their unique perspectives and fresh ideas as well as their expertise to address the global challenges humanity is facing. This new IUCN Youth Strategy recognises this. The IUCN Youth Strategy aims to embed young people’s perspectives, inclusion and empowerment in all parts and at all levels of the Union. This will allow young people to meaningfully contribute to IUCN’s vision of a just world that values and conserves nature. Drawing on the rich experiences and knowledge of IUCN Members, Commissions and Secretariat, and guided by the IUCN Programme 2021-2024, this strategy builds on existing youth mainstreaming efforts, ensures meaningful engagement of young people and supports initiatives led by young people.
