Pan-African youth forum
Pan-Africain youth forum on wetlands
23 – 24 April 2018, Cameroun, Akonolinga
Theme : Involving young people in the wise use of wetlands : an absolute necessity
Reflecting the mission of the Ramsar Convention and in the support of its delivery, the NGO Voluntariat pour l’Environnement (VPE) is organising a pan-African youth forum on these ecosystems. The forum will take place from the 23rd to the 24th April 2018 at Akonolinga (Cameroon). It aims to support exchange of information in order to develop resolutions and recommendations that lead to better engagement of young people in the protection of wetlands. The forum will also serve as the end of the work placements for those young people that have been taking part in the 6-month International Youth Programme of the VPE since November 2017.
