In March 2019, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring 2021–2030 the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. World Environment Day accelerated action on commitments, under the theme of "Our Land. Our Future. We are #GenerationRestoration."

Humanity cannot turn back time, but we can grow forests, revive water sources, and bring back soils. We are the generation that can make peace with land. This was the focus of this year’s World Environment Day

Watch the event:


  • Keynote speech by climate activist Xiye Bastida
