The stories we live by: The importance of ecosystem restoration through the lens of values, culture, and spirituality

The Egypt Hall

As the world increasingly understands the consequences of the triple planetary crisis, there is an opportunity for humanity to reorient ourselves towards the earth and natural systems. Many grassroots efforts have realized how values-based approaches that integrate culture, Indigenous knowledge, and lessons from spiritual traditions can help motivate and sustain meaningful shifts in behavior and attitudes. Within the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration context, this session will explore how diverse stakeholders can engage with these themes to heal and restore the living Earth.
