Inspiring the leaders of today

Young Leaders of the International Union for Conservation of Nature

The experiences and stories from the Canadian Committee for IUCN Youth Ambassadors, and the young conservation leaders from coast to coast to coast.

Building on the theme Parks, People, Planet: Inspiring Solutions, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) hosted the World Park Congress (WPC) in Sydney, Australia. Hosted every 10 years, this 6th World Parks Congress paved the way for a new era where protected areas are valued and conserved by all parts of society as natural solutions to global challenges.

A group of young people attended the Congress to experience, connect with, be inspired by, value, and conserve nature. Through witnessing, participating, and creating at the WPC these youth from around the world are committing to parks, people, and planet.
