R3: Restore Panel

Join us for an enlightening discussion on the role of transitioning to a plant-based food system in environmental restoration, reforestation and ecosystem recovery. Learn from experts and campaigners about the need for a holistic approach to healing our planet, building resilience, and mitigating climate change through nature-based solutions.

Discover the importance of restoring key ecosystems, such as mangroves, peat bogs, forests, grasslands, and seagrass beds, and the role of reforestation projects in carbon sequestration and habitat restoration. Dive into the potential of Highly Protected Marine Areas (HPMAs) and the conversion of existing Marine Protected Areas to no-fishing zones to address the ocean crisis.

Explore how subsidies and incentives can support farmers and landowners in good land stewardship, rewilding, reforestation, and transitioning from animal agriculture to diversified plant-based food production. Discuss the role of cities in increasing green spaces, wildlife corridors, and local growing schemes to enhance biodiversity and food justice.

Examine strategies for repurposing land, freed up from animal grazing and feed production, for rewilding, nature reserves and community gardens. Delve into the potential of shifting land ownership into community hands for reforestation, green space, and community food projects.
