CoalitionWILD Lounge

CoalitionWILD will be hosting a gathering area, the “Lounge,” where you can find more information about the work young professionals are doing around the world. The Lounge is open to everyone, and we encourage all to stop by to meet and network with change-making CoalitionWILD delegates. Projects will be featured from around the world on a looping video in the Lounge, and via posters and artwork displayed, including conservation artists. Each day, the Lounge will introduce a presenter from 1830-1900h and another presenter from 1900-1930h who will briefly describe their work and how you can get involved. The schedule (subject to change – visit the CoalitionWILD Lounge for daily activities and presentations) is currently as follows:

CoalitionWILD Program

CoalitionWILD delegates will have the opportunity to meet other change-making members from around the world while developing personal and professional leadership skills. CoalitionWILD delegates will be fully integrated into WILD10, with delegates substantively participating on-site at the Congress. The initiative inspires and empowers young people by providing a platform for innovative ideas, on-the-ground projects, activities and events, focusing attention on the power of younger generations to initiate change. Meet some of these rising leaders and learn about the work they are doing during the CoalitionWILD sessions listed.
