The Desertification Youth Forum will bring together young people and youth NGOs from around the world to discuss issues of desertification, forests, land and climate. The Forum, which will take just prior to the high-level segment of the UNCCD COP14, will feature heads of national ministries and UN agencies. If you are a youth activist under the age of 35 or represent a youth organization working in related areas, you can participate or host an event at the Forum on 7-8 September 2019. Fully-funded and self-funded spots are still open. You can submit your application by 16 August 2019 through this link.
