UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration

To support the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the Center for Earth Ethics is hosting the Values, Culture, and Spirituality Series to spotlight restoration projects around the world. These projects are led by individuals and organizations grounded in a sense of place, culture, and spirituality. We believe this approach is crucial for mobilizing action. The more we relate to nature through the lens of values, culture and spirituality, the deeper and more sustained our actions will be.

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration runs from 2021 through 2030 – the timeline scientists have identified as the last chance to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Join us for these and other Upcoming Events in this Consultation Series and Related Initiatives
