GYBN Youth Conference in Berlin, Germany

A GYBN kick-off meeting was held to launch the Network in Berlin, Germany, from 21-27 August 2012, hosted by NAJU (the German Youth Association for the Protection of Nature). 
The emphasis of the conference was on the establishment of GYBN and the preparation of youth for participation at the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties, including policy briefings on the Convention on Biological Diversity and the main issues on the agenda of the eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties. The Network’s vision is to create a global platform that will enable young environmentalists from all parts of the world to connect in order to collaborate for the protection of biodiversity. GYBN aspires to become an international coordination platform for youth-participation in the CBD processes to articulate the opinions of youth on issues addressed by the Convention.
