As a promoter for the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, IUCN and IFSA share many objectives, from the protection of our biodiversity to climate change. It is no coincidence that IFSA’s vision “A world that appreciates forests” and IUCN’s vision, “A just world that values and conserves nature” align perfectly.
Since IUCN plays a central part in the decision making and influencing processes on the societal use and conservation of natural resources, engaging with IUCN means promoting its mission and vision, ultimately becoming part of its action.
IFSA will hold a Workshop at the IUCN World Conservation Congress and actively supports the organization of the IUCN Youth Conference. This opportunity means both, a chance to get involved in the policy making process and also benefit from the combined experience and knowledge of those present while giving voice to the younger generations.
We are excited to extend our collaboration in the near future.
