As founding member, IFSA plays a key role in any decision of YIL, and is represented in its Steering Committee (SC) by the IFSA President and the Liaison Officer for YIL. Through the partnership, IFSA engages closely with the GLF, and provides IFSA students with the opportunity to participate in YIL programmes and GLF conferences for free, facilitate sessions, and even speak on stage. Furthermore, IFSA oftentimes directly shapes or facilitates youth sessions and capacity building workshops in collaboration with the GLF. In the past, IFSA members have interned and worked with GLF through their previous engagement in YIL.
Examples of Youth in Landscapes / IFSA activities are the Paris Youth Initiative in 2015, when 50 youth were invited for a 1-week training, the Nairobi Leadership Programme in 2018, when 100 youth leaders from Africa worked together in a 4-weeks online and on-ground engagement, or the Youth in Landscape Camp in Ghana, 2019, where young leaders gathered for an exhaustive 5-days experience.
