The YFJ is organizing a preparatory meeting to the COP 15, in cooperation with LSU, in order to prepare young delegates to the COP 15 as well as coordinate among groups, and increase Southern representation. There will be around 160 participants (100 Nordic, 20 YFJ MOs, 20 Southern Delegates and 20 other International). The YFJ and LSU aim to have as wide a representation as possible in order to better coordinate the work of youth towards and during the COP. There will be a mix of plenaries and separate pillar sessions so each group gets the space and time to work together but also to exchange with other groups. We will also have a half day field trip to Copenhagen.

Approximately 20 YFJ Member Organisations will be invited to send representatives and we highly encourage you to also apply for the YFJ accreditation to the COP 15 if you don't have other means to send youth delegates (See call "0680-09 Call for application- nomination COP 15 Dec 09" in the Intranet).

From its small beginning, the IUCN Red List has grown in size and complexity and now plays an increasingly prominent role in guiding conservation activities of governments, NGOs and scientific institutions.
