DEADLINE APPLICATIONS: SEPTEMBER 7, 2021

The East 
Atlantic Flyway

From Arctic breeding grounds stretching between Canada and central Siberia to wintering grounds along the Atlantic coast of Europe and Africa, the East Atlantic Flyway constitutes a critical migration path across 3 continents and 75 countries for millions of birds with nearly 300 different bird species.

This migration occurs twice a year and many of these amazing travellers will fly more than 10,000 kilometers. During their often arduous journey, wetlands constitute essential resting, feeding and breeding grounds for these species. The loss or degradation of one site along their path can seriously affect the viability of a whole population.

The Flyway Youth Forum represents a crosscutting contribution to connect the youth with the global agendas to conserve wetlands and waterbird species across the Flyway as well as connecting global agendas to the priorities and ideas of the flyway youth.

Flyway Youth
Ambassador Program

In addition to the forum, an additional program will be composed of 12 FYF participants who will act as representatives for the Flyway Youth from the Forum until September 2022. Ambassadors will be the spokespeople for the Flyway Youth across international and regional forums and discussions with the support of Youth Engaged in Wetlands.

Being a Flyway Youth Ambassador allows young people to take a
leadership and representative role within the FYF community and access
greater networking opportunities through the partner organisations. In
addition, the Ambassadors will receive a “Thank You” package for their
commitment to the Flyway Youth Forum and for taking up the
responsibilities of being Flyway Ambassadors.
