treehugger's podcast

where we re-imagine ecological restoration, promising a brighter future for human livelihoods and health as well as a just transition in a warming world.

Jan 17, 2021

Welcome to the Restoration Decade! Ann-Kathrin Neureuther recently joined UNEP as Communication Manager for the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. She walks us through the Decade Strategy that will help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The new U.N. Decade will officially launch on World Environment Day, on June 5, 2021.

Ann-Kathrin’s job is to communicate this gigantic restoration initiative that joins forces with the The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and U.N. Sustainable Development Goals focused on resisting climate change, protecting and improving the well-being of local populations, and preserving biodiversity. The Decade Strategy frames the problem like this: the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will not be achieved without large-scale restoration of degraded terrestrial, freshwater & marine ecosystems globally. The vision is a world where — for the health and wellbeing of all life on Earth and that of future generations — we have restored the relationship between humans and nature, by increasing the area of healthy ecosystems, and by putting a stop to their loss, fragmentation and degradation.
