Integrated Community Forest Management: Protecting people and the planet

As a source of air, water, food, shelter and medicine, Forests are critical to the survival of every living thing on Earth and provide livelihoods for 1.6 billion people. Forests are also a powerful natural climate solution. As they grow, trees absorb more carbon than they emit and release pure oxygen. In fact, conserving forests could cut an estimated 7 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide each year—the equivalent of getting rid of every car on the planet. Yet, alarmingly, deforestation and degradation are still ongoing, in particular in the tropics—triggering a global chain reaction of increased greenhouse gas emissions, rising temperatures, and devastating forest fires.

During this session, the Rainforest Alliance will discuss how community forests can contribute to climate mitigation and adaptation and vice-versa, and how to strengthen this linkage to achieve greater resilience for nature and local communities.

Moral Courage: Climate Justice and Human Rights

The adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015 required an almighty global commitment and collaboration, moral courage - on a historic level. Leaps forward have been made in the years since, but the voices of young people and the marginalised are still too often left out of the conversation. Global leaders and policy makers, put simply, aren’t doing enough to create a sustainable, equitable world for all. What are the next big leaps forward that we must take, together, with young leaders?

We're over overconsumption: why it's costing us the earth and what we can do about it. 

Americans buy an average of 64 items of clothing per year; more than one piece of clothing a week. Similarly, Brits amass £32,951 of unworn clothing in a lifetime. Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. And that’s just the fashion industry.

The story is the same across the consumer goods sector, whether it's electronics, food, or beauty products. The result of this addiction to stuff is that we are devouring the planet’s resources at a rate 1.7 times faster than it can regenerate which is having a devastating impact on the planet and all life on earth.

For this session, host Sara Vaughan has invited an amazing line-up of panellists to explore how we got here in the first place, and what businesses and individuals need to do to take action and avert climate disaster.
