The Planetary Forest Transition

The Planetary Forest Transition​


We are organizing next summer – from the 1st to 3rd of July 2020 – a roundtable on the global forest transition and the earth tree restoration potential on the shores of Lake Como (Italy).

Whatever we are trying to stop deforestation and restore forests, it is not working. We need to do things differently. We need new forms of decision-making and collective action. We need a game changer.

In his TedX talk, Claude Garcia explains how, through games and facilitation is it possible for people, companies and governments to find new ways to solve problems. The method has been tested and proven successful.

We want to upscale now – inviting 20 world leaders, women and men, CEOs, opinion leaders, thinkers and activists that have all taken a stand on critical social and environmental issues. We want them to spend three days in residence to rethink the global forest governance using our games and design thinking methods. We want to bring with them the proposals that will stem from these discussions to the Leader’s summit organized on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in September and to the 15th Conference of the Parties in October 2020, thus contributing to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.

Join – Pledge – Network

Who’s in? We need to build momentum.

How can you help? We need to build a community, secure funding and spread the word.
