Youth Forum – Voices of Now and the Future
The Youth Forum aims to create shared knowledge and understanding by fostering intergenerational dialogue. Voices of Now and the Future will bring together youth leaders, diverse professionals and knowledge holders to develop a shared understanding and envisage positive change. Through presentations, multi-media and participatory activities, strategies for engaging youth in culture-based climate action will be identified and shared.
