From 20 to 22 April 2022, the World Youth Assembly was held in collaboration with the United Nations and the University of Geneva. Several current environmental challenges were debated in order to develop solutions integrated in a Global Youth Charter, an action and advocacy tool that will be presented to the United Nations.In this context, OneAction participated as an expert in the workshop on "Restoring ecosystems and preventing deforestation". Alongside with another WWF expert, OneAction was able to accompany the students in their reflection and confront the solutions envisaged with the various realities on the ground.This exchange was very rich and stimulating, and OneAction thanks the Geneva Youth Call for its invitation.

Meeting with AIESEC

AIESEC, the largest international student organization, organized the Act For Tomorrow event from May 3rd to 7th, 2022, aimed at promoting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the UN. In this context, the association chose OneAction to represent the 13th SDG, namely the fight against climate change. On Friday, May 9th, we welcomed a dozen students in our offices to present the reforestation projects we support and our commitment to fight against land degradation in arid regions. It was also an opportunity to discuss some burning issues: how to effectively contribute to carbon neutrality, maximize the impact of a reforestation project and sustainably regenerate carbon sinks. We warmly thank AIESEC for this opportunity, it was a pleasure to exchange with tomorrow's actors on these important matters.
