More than 40% of the worlds population is younger than 20 years old! So why shouldn't this important part of the society have the right to speak up where crucial decisions for the future are made ? Within IFSA, forestry students have the platform to represent the interests of youth and to create their own projects to implement sustainable forest management.
What can you do as student?
“In the end, institutions such as the United Nations, the World Bank or your national government, are simply made up of people. And many of these people will be happy to listen to you, if you are well informed and in turn respect their views.” Pekka Patosaari, head of the UNFF Secretariat to participants of the IFSA Seminar "International Frameworks in Forests Politics"
Through the International Processes Commission, IFSA tries to communicate the concerns of youth to the United Nations and International Policy institutions as to give especially forestry students the opportunity to learn more about the International Forestry Dialogue and to get active in the for forests and education relevant processes, as there are:
- United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF)
