Young people are the future of Biosphere reserves, and they should be given a voice in shaping their territory and defining their engagement in the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme of UNESCO.

The MAB Secretariat felt, therefore, the need to offer, together with the Regional Bureau in Venice, an opportunity for all young people who care about the special territories in which they live, to become actors in the MAB Programme and to ensure the sustainable development of their communities in line with the Lima Action Plan. This initiative, announced for the first time during the 4th World Congress of Biosphere Reserves in Lima, Peru, has been welcomed by an ovation!
