About the Congress

The IUCN World Conservation Congress, held once every four years, will take place in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, September 1-10, 2016. This is the first time the United States has been honored with hosting the Congress.

The IUCN Congress aims to improve the management of the natural environment for human, social and economic development by engaging all parts of society to share both the responsibilities and benefits of conservation.

The 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress is also a significant opportunity to shape the next generation of stewards. This is the first time that specific programming for youth and young leaders has been developed for the IUCN Congress. Having youth and next generation leaders take part in the IUCN Congress would be an initial step towards succession planning, conservation career pathways, and community development.

The events listed below aim to offer a meaningful experience for youth and young leaders that engages them in discussions about conservation issues and involves them in the decision-making process.

These opportunities in parallel with the IUCN Congress act as a leveraging point for youth initiatives and plans to continue the momentum of the IUCN Congress well beyond September 2016.
