Countries have promised to revive 1 billion hectares of land and coasts – an area larger than China. But where are the global restoration success stories? Watch the Virtual Announcement Gala to meet the UN’s first ten World Restoration Flagships – the most ambitious, promising, and inspirational examples of making peace with nature. The first World Restoration Flagships stretch across 23 countries and all ecosystems. Has your country joined the race for restoration? What will you restore?
Relive the Virtual Gala from here, and hear from our celebrity correspondents, experts, special music acts, and restoration leaders directly from our planet’s frontiers of hope. The Gala included never-before-seen video footage and voices from restoration leaders at 10 flagship sites.
The ten selected Flagship Initiatives were launched at the margins of the high-level segment of the United Nations Biodiversity Conference (CBD COP15) during Restoration Day on 13 December.
