Kick-starting an environmental youth group - launching a youth group, from initial concept to high-impact reality
On today's podcast, we meet up with Vania Olmos Lau, a Mexican biologist who specializes in setting up and kick-starting environmental youth groups. Vania has a knack for conceptualizing and setting up youth-based groups, from the highly successful Restoration Stewards to the Network of Young Environmentalists in Mexico. She has also been involved with establishing the Latin American branches for Youth 4 Nature and the Major Group for Children and Youth. Join us as we hear tips from Vania on how to set up an environmental youth group, while building a sustainable movement with maximum impact.
