East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum 2022 Progress Report

Encouraged by the experience at the first East Atlantic Flyway Youth Forum (EAFYF) held in 2021, the organising team from Youth Engaged in Wetlands, the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, and the Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative organised a fundraising training for EAFYF 2022, building on the outcomes of the first forum. The aim was to increase the youths’ capacity to write successful grant proposals to raise money for their conservation projects. The outcomes of these activities are briefly summarised in this report, highlighting the eagerness and enthusiasm of many young conservationist along the flyway to take action and become involved in the protection of our migratory bird species.
