The emergency is real, it´s here. This is a call to action for local solutions and collaboration across sectors to restore forests and soils and our common future. Ecosystems and communities need toolkits with regenerative practices, with a viable local protocol and transparent MRV in order to align sub-national public policies, the civil society and the philanthropic community to protect biodiversity and rural livelihoods.
Join this official event hosted by Querétaro State, Mexico, the new Co-Chair for Latin America of the Under2° Coalition, in a discussion about current solutions for our planet.
“Judith Schwartz’s world tour of environmental solutions shows how nature itself can heal the wounds we have inflicted on our planet.”
Alfonso Dosal: “We want to defend our constitutional right to a healthy environment and the protection of Natural Protected Areas.”
Pati Ruiz: “It´s time to value natural capital in favor of the local communities that own the land, and increase ecosystems´ capacity to thrive.”
The model for regenerating forests and farmlands pioneered by Querétaro State and leaders in the field of regenerative financing, community building, holistic management and conservation in action come together for a dynamic discussion around sub-national Public Policy, local initiatives and nature-based solutions.
