The opening session will be held on September 22 as a UN General Assembly High-Level Side Event, according to PNUD´s official website.

The second part of the Hub, a three-day virtual series of events, produced by UNDP, the UN Environment Program (UNEP), the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), with other partners, will be broadcast from October 4 to 6.

This unique virtual event will take audiences on thematic journeys for a deep dive into specialist topics such as sustainable food production, transforming finance, and ecosystem protection, and will explore some of the practical solutions and ambitious actions that are paving a path toward a nature-positive future.

‘From governments and businesses to local communities around the world, we are seeing a wholesale shift in awareness that we need to dramatically change our relationship with the planet, and we need to put nature at the heart of everything we do. The nature for Life Hub helps raise ambition and hope for the essential transformations we need now,’ said UNDP Administrator Achim Steine.

Organizers anticipate that the October 4 session, ¨Transforming our relationship with the planet¨, will explore how society can reshape current economic and political models to develop solutions that protect and restore the environment, including new partnerships recognizing the rights of Indigenous peoples.

The session includes the Equator Prize, an annual award recognizing community efforts to achieve local sustainable development through nature-based solutions.

This year’s winners, drawn from local and indigenous communities from 9 countries, have together protected more than 1.8 million hectares of critical ecosystems, and have improved the livelihoods of over 180,000 people.
