Eco-Generation. Supporting Youth Environmental Initiatives

18 Jun , 10:00–11:15
International Youth Economic Forum
Pavilion G, conference hall G7

Environmental activism is gaining traction with the young people. The emerging demand needs to be met with new comprehensive and systematic initiatives that can provide a wide range of opportunities in the environmental field, from eco-lobbying to career guidance. Every year new practices transpire in the Russian Federation, involving more and more young people. What new environmental projects will be implemented in 2022? What constitutes the "green" demand from the young people? How to make the youth’s work on environmental issues comprehensive?
