Youth Pavilion Coordinator at the 2017 Global Landscapes Forum
Ready to collaborate with leading global organizations in landscapes?

We want to hear from you!

The Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and its partners are looking for engaging young professionals and students to create interactive Landscape Pavilion sessions at the 2017 Global Landscapes Forum on Dec 19-20, 2017 in Bonn, Germany. Landscape Pavilions will be organized by the 5 GLF themes: (Rights, Food and Livelihoods, Landscape Restoration, Financing Landscapes and Monitoring Progress Made on Landscape Goals) and be hosted by organizations like the UN Environment, FAO, Oxfam, WRI, UNCCD, and others. The Pavilions will provide spaces where people working across landscapes can meet, talk and hear from communities to plan for practical action.

We are looking for young professionals (or talented and accomplished students) to work with Pavilion hosts in creating a 2-day agenda that shares knowledge, challenges conventions, and incorporates a range of voices and opinions. These may include:
- side events to showcase initiatives and pilot projects
- round tables with various stakeholders
- extended deep-dives following discussion forums

The ideal candidate has extensive knowledge or experience in the chosen Pavilion theme, facilitation or event management experience, and an enthusiastic, creative approach to communication. Selected candidates will receive online training in facilitation and engagement techniques in the lead up to GLF 2017. As a Pavilion coordinator your responsibility will be to facilitate the activities of the Pavilion. This will require you to be present within the Pavilion throughout GLF 2017 unless otherwise agreed upon by the Pavilion host.
