The health of ecosystems on which we and all species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide. Yet a different future is possible, the solutions to reversing these trends lie notably among those who will be most affected by them – young people.  A new generation of young people and ecopreneurs has emerged and is putting the planet’s health first.

Join this session to hear more about youth’s engagement and expectations. Share your views and stories of change with EU Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen and Cristián Samper President and CEO of WCS.
