On Saturday February 26th, the Biodiversity Matters Youth Board had their second meeting for 2011. It was held in Ottawa with several youth from around the Ottawa Region and we had three youth that skyped in from the USA, Mexico and Panama. The meeting discussion covered a number of different issues including the Third Youth Symposium in India in 2012, possible activities for May 22nd 2011- Biodiversity day, activities for the year of youth, and the year of forestry! There is a possibility that Ashbury College will host a special one day event on May 22. Our team will divide our offical listing of partners between us so we can post our partner's work regularily. We also discussed how to get more youth communicating on our blog- please spread the word! We want to hear from you! We are planning our next Biodiversity Youth Board Meeting on Saturday March 26th at ASLA. We would like to expand the group of youth, so if you are interested bring a friend, please contact us. All are welcome!
