Youth Position on EU Nature Restoration Law

As the drafting of the Nature Restoration Law is currently under development, we have joined forces with Generation Climate Europe, Biodiversity
Action Europe, Global Youth for Biodiversity Network Europe, Young Rewilders & Young
Friends of the Earth Europe, and developed a Youth NGOs’ position paper.

We emphasise the need to seize the opportunity of this law for the protection of the fundamental rights of younger generations which should also be reflected with an explicit reference to the important role of youth in future restorative action in the EU and beyond.

We propose three crucial points that the Nature Restoration Law must take into account:

  1. Genuine and full stakeholders and youth engagement;
  2. Policy consistency (coherence, additionality, linearity);
  3. Funds and subsides aligned with biodiversity and youth
