Session 5.2

The power of people: How can we live better, lighter and closer to nature?

In cooperation with UNEP

In a world under threat from global health concerns, economic challenges and biodiversity loss and climate change, our living and lifestyle decisions will collectively determine our future. This session will ask the big questions about how things can change. How can we better understand our decision impacts and find new ways for everyone to live better, lighter and closer to nature?  
Join UNEP and global experts as they offer insights on sustainable living and COVID19 trends, nature-based solutions that are already available and others that are still required, and how media and cultural influencers could drive the transformational changes we need. These insights will set the stage to inspire participants, highlight pathways to more sustainable living, and provide evidence and messages for action. What more could you ask for?
