Engaging Youth in Science and Conservation

Mozambique’s youth are a key constituency for protecting biodiversity for the future.  SPEED+, together with partners such as Biofund, will support the empowerment of young engage youth in biodiversity and conservation science.  One such activity is a special youth focused Conservation Science Conference, which would allow younger people to present their studies or research and empower them to take leadership roles in the discussion of conservation and biodiversity issues. 

SPEED+ work with the University Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) and with the National Administration for Conservation Areas (ANAC) to develop a biodiversity conservation awareness raising event on the March 3rd World Wildlife Day.
