Gabrielle Lipton, editor of Landscape News, speaks on a panel in the Global Climate Action Hub at COP 25 in Madrid. To draw attention to the environmental danger a toxic tributary poses and the opportunities it offers for regeneration, Global Landscapes Forum partnered with Greenpoint Innovations (GPI) in the creation of a mural by Brooklyn-based artists Danielle Mastrion and Lexi Bella.

It was unveiled on Sept. 21, 2019 on the eve of the U.N. Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit, which was held on Sept. 23, 2019 during the city’s Climate Week ahead of discussions on the U.N. Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF).
