Limited Capacity seats available

The aim of our workshop is to illustrate the value of diversity in conservation discussions and efforts. Recognizing that despite differences in opinions and in the way we choose to do conservation, we are ultimately all working towards the same goalto conserve wildlife. 

Join us and join in on our interactive session where we present:  
  • a short introduction to the new network that is Youth for Wildlife Conservation (Y4WC). 
  • an interactive roleplay game where groups participants will assess their change in perception regarding the many players of wildlife conservation.
Case study: What is my character’s approach to conserving orangutans on Borneo?
 In this interactive session, participants will be formed into groups and each group will be given a character that plays a role in wildlife conservation. The perspective of each character will be played out, leading to discussions and debates.
  • We will then end with some videos from Y4WC members of our network around the world, introducing their work and all the different ways they do conservation.

Youth for Wildlife Conservation
 is a new youth (aged 18-30) organization whose mission is to support early-career conservationists through peer-to-peer support and cooperationprofessional skills development and youth empowerment in order to become future conservation leaders the world needs. We, the youth, recognize we are stronger together and by connecting and working with the experts of today as can we save the future for people and wildlife. 
We will need a projector for the videos (+ cables), (We can provide)  sheets of paper (poster size) + colored pens.
