  • IFFA will build on the youth focus at the World Forestry Congress to increase the experience exchange among the IFFA members regarding engaging youth in the family forestry organisations. Youth mobilisation will be part of the experience exchange in regional IFFA meetings. The experience exchange will be extended to the G3 group and other cooperation organisations.

    The youth side event for setting the stage at the World Forestry Congress will be organised Sunday 6 September 2015 in Durban, South Africa, the day before the opening of Congress.
    The theme is: Youth - Setting the stage: engage, speak out, be heard!

    Objectives of the event are:
    •Youth delegates get to know each other
    •Youth delegates learn about the upcoming Congress week and how youth engagement is organized
    •Youth delegates gain better understanding about how to establish their presence at large events and how to network

    During the World Forestry Congress, a special youth event will be organised Tuesday 8th September. The theme is: “Youth event – Forests for the Future”.
