and Actions Plan (NBSAPs , https://www.cbd.int/nbsap/search/default.shtml) and to contribute towards
the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets (https://www.cbd.int/sp/targets/), the Global Youth Biodiversity
Network (GYBN, www.gybn.org) is hosting a series of capacity-building workshops around the world in 2018/19.
Participants will take part in team building, networking and training sessions in international biodiversity
conservation policy, mobilization, advocacy, campaign skills and project management to create or enhance
existing projects that directly contribute to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the implementation of NBSAPs.

who are based in the region in which the workshop is held. Flights will only be funded for travel
within the same region.
Visa costs will be reimbursed on a case by case basis.
