The GEO-6 for Youth is UNEP’s first full interactive e-publication that provides engaging multimedia content and interactive features to inform, engage and lead to youth action. This landmark report represents an opportunity for UNEP to link the scientific efforts of the organization to youth, who have a crucial role in decision-making, entrepreneurship, and bringing about transformative change.
The event, through selected panelists and interactive discussion, will cover the three main areas of (1) Communicating science to the Youth, (2) Sustainable actions/activism and (3) Green jobs of the future and the skills to access these opportunities while taking in consideration the challenges young people are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
