The Youth Forum will take place as a webinar with people from all over the world, as a platform for young people and activists to speak about their concerns regarding our heritage and the future. 

With the support of the International Association of World Heritage Professionals e.V., the Technical University of Munich in Germany, and Centro Educativo Surval in Mexico, we organized a dynamic session based on FLACAM’s precepts of educational training: Attitude, Competence and Skills. These precepts aim to inspire the youth to develop sustainable and innovative approaches towards our world heritage #OurSustainableHeritage. 
The new generations will certainly face new challenges in terms of environment, climate change, conflict, globalisation and many more, that will affect the way we live. What is their perception on sustainability and heritage? What would be the role of our natural, built and intangible heritage in the future? Who will protect it and how? What are the concerns and fears of the youth about the future? Moreover, what are their ideas and recommendations to make this future more liveable and hopeful?

We launched a call for videos with the intention not only of putting them together to distribute in our social networks, but to have them as a basis to select the young speakers of our event. We have selected the most inspiring speakers to raise the voice of the youth!
The forum will also be the space to show the results of the Youth Survey on Sustainability Perceptions, launched in early 2021 by OWH-Sustainability and responded by hundreds of young people!
In addition, it will link to the Youth activities of the OWH thematic axes on Climate Change & Biodiversity and Heritage Places & Memory.

The event will take place in English and Spanish and will have simultaneous translation.
