Helping celebrate youth presence at World Parks Congress

As the 2014 IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia draws closer, we would like to continue featuring the young people involved in the Congress and highlight our youth presence.

Tom (Young Peoples Media Coalition, CoalitionWILD) and Ashley (Global Youth Ambassadors, Stream 8: Inspiring a New Generation) have put together a questionnaire to then create biographies for all young people involved in the Congress. These biographies will be featured in communication and publication pieces for the World Parks Congress and may help to connect you with stream sessions you may be interested in.

If you are under 35 and involved in the congress please fill out the questions applicable to you to the best of your ability. We also ask that you select 2-3 high resolution photos to accompany your completed biography to be used in publication. By submitting the photos and the form, you are agreeing to this information being made public for all potential purposes related to the Congress. If you are over 35 please share this questionnaire with young people who are working / volunteering for / planning on attending World Parks Congress.

The questions are available here. If you are having trouble filling out online form, you can submit your answers on the word document provided below. These can be sent to ashley.mitton@pc.gc.ca and twiercioch17@gmail.com.

We look forward to learning more about you and your work, sharing your story, and celebrating the young people involved in the World Parks Congress!
