The environmental sector (including conservation) is one of the hardest sectors for young people to enter, not least because of fierce competition for jobs. The sector also suffers from a lack of diversity, especially ethnic. Yet the sector is vital for a sustainable planet. What's going wrong? What could be done better? On International Youth Day 2020, join other young people and staff from environmental organisations for presentations and discussion exploring the value of young people, the difficulties young people face when entering the environmental sector, and how we could overcome these barriers.
