Right at the beginning of the new year 2021, we are starting with our new series of events called “Youth Summit Talks”. This Talks will lead towards our annual Summit that will again take place in late 2021.
The “Youth Summit Talks” are a platform to learn more about climate related topics and to meet other climate activists from all over the world. The workshops will always consist of a talk by a scientists / negotiator / policy maker ect. and a following Q&A session. In the end, there will be time to network with others.
For our first Talk with the title “A holistic approach towards improving forest restoration outcomes.” we have invited Dr. Leland Werden.
The workshop will take place on January 23, 2021 at 4PM UTC via Zoom. Register now and be part of it!
