CITES Youth Network - Webinar

February 8th 2023 | 15:00 Central European Time | Microsoft Teams

It is one of the Secretariat's goals to further youth* involvement in CITES. It is important that young people are represented within the Convention and it is particularly important that there is a mechanism in place by which the next generation has the opportunity to be informed and engaged in the work of CITES, so that they are equipped to take the Convention forward should they want to. The Convention being one of the world’s biggest conservation tool, it is a great place to see how multifaceted and complex conservation can be.

Definition of Youth* :

The CITES network will be using the youth definition given by the United Nations, with our target audience thus being “persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years, without prejudice to other definitions by Member States.” If ever in doubt you can check what your country’s definition is, as it seems to vary.
