Dear Student Participants,


Within the context of International Conference on "Successful Transformation toward Land Degradation Neutrality (Future Perspective), we would  be very happy to welcome you in the youth forum on " Land Degradation Neutrality from Local to Global Scale” that will be held in the last day of Soil Congress 2019 Ankara on June 19th, 2019. We do hope that collecting and connecting your “local”  (country or regional level) evaluations  will gain us a special insight to give a “global” message for all societies and countries suffering from land degradation problems and will also help us to consolidate the outcomes of the Soil Congress 2019, especially in the respect of “LDN Future Perspective”. All participants of the Soil Congress 2019 would be welcome to join youth forum as listener but utmost 20 participants (preferentially students and the researchers younger than 40 years at the day of the application deadline) would be accepted as youth forum speakers due to the time limit.
