Youth4Mountains Series

We take this opportunity to share with you UNIMONT’s call for youth between the ages of 16 and 29 from around the world, living in mountain areas or passionate about sustainability, to participate in the Youth4Mountains Series and contribute to drafting a manifesto on the need for specific education to promote the sustainable development of mountain territories worldwide.

In the lead up to the event “Connecting youth and mountains, creating a lively future”, to be held on 8 October 2021 at Expo Dubai, the University of Milan through UNIMONT, together with the Mountain Partnership Secretariat, Euromontana, Alparc and EUSALP Youth Council, are launching a consultation series centred around young people, their ideas and opinions.

The series is composed of two online working sessions on 15 and 22 September at 11.00–12.30 CEST.

The first session will comprise a training opportunity followed by an open discussion on climate change; biodiversity; interconnection, virtual and physical mobility; and entrepreneurship and innovation. During the second session, working tables will collect the inputs of the youth participants on the four topics previously explored. 

The final session of the series on 8 October will lead to the drafting of the Mountain Education and Innovation Manifesto for the promotion of a sustainable and lively future in mountain areas globally. The manifesto will be presented at Expo Dubai by the youth who took part in the consultation.

The consultations will be closed events. Register to participate in the Youth4Mountains Series by completing the questionnaire.
