The very body that we carry is just an outcrop of this planet, so there is no good life without a good planet.
There is no trade-off between sustainability and profitable growth.
Change is more likely to last if solutions are community-led. That puts them at the heart of our approach.
We need to do three things: (1) Take climate change seriously (2) Get angry with those with the most responsibility (3) Imagine the world that we have to hurry towards, a much better, healthier and fairer world of much stronger relationships powered by solidarity and empathy.
"Landscape restoration is the biggest response to the Sustainable Development Goals. Addressing the integrity of our landscapes addresses food, water and energy security, and even women’s rights. It is becoming one of the ways that climate action can be achieved at scale. The Global Landscapes Forum allows us to accelerate this vision."
This is a movement worth building.
We need to convince our citizens that we need a restoration program. We are proving that restoration is a big issue, an urgent action that all actors should pay attention to.
We’re going to change the financial market to make it work for everyone.

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!
