CEESP Youth Engagement and Intergenerational Partnership
The Vision, Mission and Objectives of the CEESP Youth Network
In 2010, the Nga Wawata o nga Rangatahi o te Ao – Global Youth Network was established for youth of the world to encourage discussion of issues of shared concern regarding sustainable development and the future at the Sharing Power Conference, held in Whakatane, New Zealand, in January 2011. Since then, CEESP Youth members actively participated in a number of events, most significantly at the 2012 World Conservation Congress. We want to build on the momentum created since 2011 to continue the development a global youth network together with other IUCN Commission Young Professional Groups, and foster greater opportunities for intergenerational partnerships within CEESP and the IUCN as we lead to the World Parks Congress.
• Our vision is an intergenerational community of leaders who learn and work together within and through IUCN, for a just, sustainable and peaceful world.
• Our mission is to contribute to CEESP's work program and priority areas through intergenerational partnerships between established and emerging leaders and CEESP thematic and regional groups.
• Our goals for 2013-2016 are to: 1) recognize and support emerging leaders in the structures, policies and activities of CEESP; 2) promote the involvement of youth in the development of CEESP's four prioritiy areas for 2013-2016; and 3) foster cross-commission collaboration and participation.
