The Youth in Landscapes Initiative received a total of 150 applications from 60 countries, with 75 applications from women and 75 applications from men. Each young innovator applicant was asked to submit a video presentation describing their proposal on how to solve real-world land use challenges. However, in the end, the selection committee chose 29 women and 21 men from 31 countries. Join us in issuing a warm welcome to our 50 youth innovators who will tackle the 5 landscape challenges in Paris from 1-4 December http://bit.ly/1MhcUOM
