East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum 2021

5th August, 2021

Taking off #ForNature from Africa to the Arctic

18-19 & 25-26 September, 2021

This forum aims to connect youth leaders, scientists, activists, artists, and conservationists in the East Atlantic Flyway through a series of intensive virtual workshops, platform exchanges, and networking activities. 

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. 

Event Date: September 18-19, & 25-26, 2021

Event Place: Virtual sessions through Zoom
