CITES Youth Network - Webinar February 8th 2023

The CITES Secretariat organised a Webinar for Youth with the goal of raising awareness about the Convention and getting young people more involved in its work. 

It is an important aim of the Secretariat 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. 

The programme of the webinar included: 

  • Welcome - Introductions - objectives
  • Introduction to CITES: what it is & how it works
  • Opportunities for Youth within CITES
  • World Wildlife Day (WWD)
  • Q&A and Next steps
