Join us at the world’s largest 24-hour digital event on restoration #RestoreOurFuture

On Wednesday 2 September 2020, the Bonn Challenge Secretariat will host a global event celebrating the first milestone year of the Bonn Challenge and the enormous impact of the forest landscape restoration (FLR) movement.

The 24-hour digital event, called #RestoreOurFuture, will showcase the unprecedented restoration action that has been achieved over the last decade, across all time zones. During this 24-hour period an exciting programme of live activity will launch, including: videos, new case study interviews, live panels and more!

Global leaders and restoration champions will celebrate the diversity of benefits that FLR brings and call for increased global commitments from governments to reach the 2030 target of 350 million hectares under restoration, in advance of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

Influencers and spokespeople already involved include Bianca Jagger, Dr. Bruno Oberle (Director General, IUCN), Jochen Flasbarth (State Secretary, BMU), and thousands of other government ministers, indigenous leaders, youth activists and restoration champions.

We invite you to join the event live on the day and share your experiences and thoughts on why restoration is an essential solution to tackling climate change, economic and social issues.
