Held in the lead-up to the GLF Accra 2019 conference from 29-30 October, this program will bring together young change-makers from around the world to take a deep, analytical look at a local community or project that has successfully achieved its goals for a more sustainable landscape.

Prior to the workshop, participants will collaborate with organizers via Skype to conduct a gap analysis of their hosting community, and brainstorm recommendations to further improve the landscapes. By bringing their expertise and skills, they will have the possibility to collaborate with the local community on how to strengthen well-functioning features, and how to overcome pressing obstacles.
26 – 28 October: Youth in Landscapes Camp
With three days of interactive workshops, community building activities, and conversations with key stakeholders in the project site, youth participants will be encouraged and inspired to become front-line actors in their countries.
