Call for Application: Safe Environment Nepal-‘Youth for Conservation’ (SEN-Y4C)

Safe Environment Nepal-‘Youth for Conservation’ (SEN-Y4C) with support from APMN/ICIMOD under its youth for sustainable development (Y4SMD) programme is conducting the Nepal National Youth Forum on Green Solution from 6- 8 December 2012 in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Youth can make a difference provided they realise their importance to their society, nation and the globe as a whole. The major hindrance to today’s youth is unemployment due to lack of opportunity and awareness. Opportunity can be created utilising available resources and, SEN-Y4C- is committed towards raising awareness among youth about the environmental aspect of humans, making wise use of available natural resources, identifying gaps and bridging them through trainings and capacity building to achieve the sustainable development goal.
To bring forward this important component and more importantly to promote green solutions for youths, SEN-Y4C announces the call for application from all interested youths (aged 15-29) from all over Nepal.

Organisers Overview
Safe Environment Nepal – Youth for Conservation is women led youth organisation involved in guiding youths to maintaining clean environment by providing trainings and other technical supports to rural as well as urban communities in Nepal and establish networks with youth organisations throughout the world. We work to protect and restore the nature with motive to build the next generation of conservation leaders. SEN-Y4C is a place where college and high school students connect with nature, render hands-on service, gain new skills and perspectives, and launch a lifetime of stewardship.
Sponsor and technical supporter of this event, the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) values the potential role that young people can play in promoting sustainable mountain development. To inform, empower, and involve youth from the region in the development process, ICIMOD has implemented more than 48 major events dedicated to youth engagement since the launch of the Youth for Sustainable Mountain Development (Y4SMD) initiative in August 2009. Y4SMD now has a network of around 4,000 youth from the Asia Pacific region and beyond, with a majority from ICIMOD’s regional member countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan.
