Meet our two youth correspondents at the GA 2017

We are happy to announce that Malika Kanatbek kyzy from Kyrgyz Republic and Noel Castro Fernández from Spain will join us in Canada as youth correspondents for our general assembly in October. It was a difficult decision, as we had more than 350 applications from around the world.

Malika (21) is a socially aware young journalism student who wants to participate in finding solutions to change the world for the better. She has attended several environmental conferences in the last few years, such as the Global Forum on Protection of Snow Leopards in 2013. Malika covers environmental, social and political topics on her blog and works as Editor in Chief at a student newspaper. She has a keen interest in photography, film and writing.

Noel (22) is a student of journalism, TV, media and film in Madrid with experience working at both a newspaper and a radio station. Noel has participated in several study abroad programmes, where he learned a lot about filmmaking. He is passionate about international relations and environmental topics.

Malika and Noel are both looking forward to gaining deeper insights into FSC’s work and to communicate about the FSC General Assembly 2017 from a more youth-oriented perspective.
