Call for Participation at the International Youth Conference on Biodiversity 2010

The Ministry of the Environment of Japan (“MOE”) will hold the “International Youth Conference on Biodiversity in Aichi 2010” in Japan in August 2010 in order to promote communication among young people from around the world and to improve their mutual awareness of biodiversity.

The conference is associated with the 10th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (so-called “CBD COP10”) that will be held in Aichi in October 2010.

This conference takes impetus from a previous international youth conference held just before COP9 in Germany in May 2008 and the Asia Youth Conference held in Japan in August 2009, and is intended to:

(1)     Provide young people who will lead the next generation with opportunities to improve their understanding of and participation in conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity;
(2)     Enhance development of young people who will lead the next generation through participation in a forum of international discussions and activities;
(3)     Facilitate building of an international network for youths and mutual understanding among them.

The MOE is now inviting applications from individuals in colleges, universities and high schools all over the world to participate in the conference.
