From: 27.06.2024 to: 27.06.2024

In the lead up to the 27th Session of the Committee on Forestry (COFO 27) and the 9th World Forest Week, this event is dedicated to spotlighting success stories from young mountain foresters operating in the field. Organized together by the Mountain Youth Hub (MYH) and the COFO 27 Youth Task Force, young mountain professionals, including members of the MYH, will come together to share their expertise and engage in a Q&A session.

The event will take place online via Zoom on 27 June from 15.00-16.00 CEST.

Mountain ecosystems are vital for livelihoods, providing water, biodiversity, food and energy essential for human well-being and sustainable development. However, these ecosystems face increasing threats from climate change, extreme weather, deforestation, land degradation and natural disasters.

The MYH, supported by the Mountain Partnership Secretariat (MPS) at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), is a dynamic platform empowering youth to protect and manage mountain ecosystems. Launched during the 2023 IPROMO summer course, the MYH mobilizes youth to lead efforts in advancing sustainable practices and fostering resilience in mountain communities.

Event speakers from the MYH:

  • Sergio Esteban Lozano Baez, Colombia
  • Marggiori Pancorbo Olivera, Peru
  • Karem Del Castillo Velázquez, Mexico
  • Rocío Melina García, Argentina
