PARKS FOR THE PLANET FORUM

Upcoming Program

Overview

Cities play a key role in meeting the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals. Linked to their broader land- and seascapes, urban centers are often highly dependent on the ecosystems of their surrounding protected areas and natural habitats. Parks, protected areas and other nature-rich spaces in and around cities can provide major nature-based solutions to challenges of public health, climate change, and urban resilience.

This program, part of the Parks for the Planet Forum, will convene thought leaders, change-makers and policymakers from different regions and disciplines. Together, they will look at how to promote awareness of the crucial role and benefits of nature for urban communities and encourage policies, investments and partnerships to mainstream nature-rich areas in and around cities as a critical component of urban health and resilience.
