Station Europe at the David Attenborough Building, University of Cambridge

Station Europe is in Cambridge at the BirdLife100 World Congress! 

As project manager of the ”It`s Time” project funded by the European Commission, I’m here to share with the Young Leaders the digital skills and knowledge needed to pursue their work as advocates for climate and biodiversity crises.

My day started at the David Attenborough Building, University of Cambridge, where I had the opportunity to lead the Communication Workshop for the BirdLife Young Leaders. The objective of this workshop was to teach these Young Leaders how to use social media for social good and become effective advocates for climate and biodiversity issues.

First in a Lifetime Experience

Following the workshop, the Young Leaders were introduced to their ”First in a Lifetime” experience, created by Station Europe, to help them make their voices heard both online and offline. They were split into six teams, and with our guidance, they created and designed their videos, sharing a powerful message with the world. This challenge was a great opportunity for the Young Leaders to put into practice what they had learned in the Communication Workshop and to create their first tangible work in this project.

I am proud of what we accomplished during the BirdLife100 World Congress and our collaboration with the Young Leaders. Their enthusiasm and passion for the environment inspired me, and I am eager to see what the future holds for them. They are now ready to make their voices heard and take action to make a positive impact in the fight against climate and biodiversity crises.
