Will you invest in the next generation? Join us for YLP-MED 2020!

EFI opens the call for partners and sponsors for the 2020 edition of its Young Leadership Programme – Mediterranean.


The first edition of EFI’s Young Leadership Programme – Mediterranean (2018) was a great success, with positive evaluations from participants and speakers alike. Will you join us in 2020 and make the next edition OUTSTANDING?

We are looking for partners and sponsors to join us in preparing a world-class programme for young leaders in the Mediterranean, where forests have crucial, yet unrealised, potential to contribute to a global bioeconomy. Can you help us foster young talent to develop creative ideas and innovative approaches which will improve the management of natural resources in this diverse and dynamic region?

EFI’s Young Leadership Programme – Mediterranean edition (YLP-MED) provides training, knowledge sharing and networking on the conservation and management of Mediterranean forests, to increase and improve their contribution to a more sustainable and equitable bioeconomy.

The five-day programme offers a unique opportunity for young professionals with leadership potential to interact with global and regional experts, network with peers and develop strategic thinking on how to manage and use forest resources to address societal challenges.

Join us for the next edition and broaden the horizon for the leaders of tomorrow:

  • Sponsor a participant, so we can offer the opportunity to the most outstanding candidates
  • Sponsor a session, so we can invite the best speakers in their fields
  • Become a media partner, so that we can reach out across the Mediterranean

YLP-MED will take place in Barcelona from 29 June – 3 July 2020. Please do not hesitate to contact Programme Director, Inazio Martinez de Arano, for details of sponsorship and partner opportunities.
