To kick off the Global Landscapes Forum 2013's Youth discussions, YPARD members were invited to share their suggestions online on what young people were doing to overcome their hurdles on the four themes we identified through youth communiqués from past events as important to building a youth-supportive environment within the landscapes sector. 79 contributions were provided by 18 members, mainly from Africa but also from Asia, Europe and the Caribbean.
The e-discussion outputs were brought into the GLF2013 youth session to nurture the discussions onsite and bring input of members who were not able to attend the conference, giving a voice to a wider group of young people.
We trust that the result of these e-discussions could provide a strong background for further discussions and for moving towards concrete plans and commitments.
