Protecting forests means protecting mankind and protecting mankind means protecting forests we are in symbiosis
The world belatedly has discovered the power of soil, the power of forests, and the power of nature. I see clearly that the restoration and landscape approach has been gaining momentum.
As we modernize, we must support traditional knowledge systems, which are those linked to sustainable agriculture.
This is a movement worth building.
The very body that we carry is just an outcrop of this planet, so there is no good life without a good planet.
Restoring ecosystems and ecosystem services will come with economic and social benefits at the local and national level.
There is no trade-off between sustainability and profitable growth.
We are all stakeholders in the problems we address.

Calling all young leaders: Join our training and short course!
Are you interested in learning about international efforts to halt deforestation and restore land? We're making it easy - 15 minutes a day for 5 days starting Feb 20th - and get your inside look into the International Conference on Deforestation.
We spark and sustain conversations on sustainability. We are the world’s largest, science-led multi-sectoral platform, engaging year-round through global, regional and local events, national policy dialogues and online Digital Summits.
Evidence sits at the core of our platform. We produce, gather and disseminate diverse types of knowledge —scientific, traditional, practical — with the aim to facilitate co-learning and create impact across our five main research themes.
The Forum is not a static entity, but a dynamic movement that grows stronger with your involvement, ideas and innovation. Be a part of it!
