Nature Conservation in Asia: Stories by the Global Youth Biodiversity Network, Powered by PechaKucha

Ever wondered what it's like to work with the elusive snow leopard? Watch a family of tigers roam the forests? Fight wildlife crime? Join us for an evening of inspiration by young Asian leaders from the Global Youth Biodiversity Network! Listen to tiger conservationists, Indigenous Peoples, and other young heroes protecting precious species in the region

The Global Youth Biodiversity Network (GYBN) is a global network of youth organizations and individuals whose common goal is to prevent the loss of biodiversity. Recognized and supported by the Secretariat to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), GYBN is also the official youth constituency in the CBD negotiations, committed to bringing the opinions and positions of young people into the political process, empowering young people to take action. At present, there are over 342,500 members from 115 youth organizations representing 107 countries.

In 2017, GYBN is pioneering Youth Capacity Building Workshops all over the world in Africa, Asia, Latin America & the Caribbean, Europe and North America. In collaboration with the Singapore Government, the Asia Workshop is held in UNESCO World Heritage Site Singapore Botanic Gardens in May 2017 to bring together 25 young leaders in the region to build the community of Asian youth committed to stemming biodiversity loss.

GYBN was created as the result of an international initiative by young people who participated in CBD COP10 in 2010, and was officially established in 2012. The network is coordinated by an international, elected steering committee and is entirely run by young people for young people. For more information, please visit: http://www.gybn.org/http://www.facebook.com/thegybn


"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format." 

Contact us if you would like to use the PechaKucha format in your event.
