UNDP Nature For Life: Local Action Day – Session 4.1

November 23, 2020 , 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm CST

Streaming on Live 1

Encore! Originally aired September 28

Monday, November 23 | 1:30 – 3:30 PM CST (2:30 – 4:30 PM EST)

Duration: 120 min

Description: Local action is essential in nature if we are to tackle our planetary emergency; we need an all-of-society approach. We are already seeing action by youth, Indigenous peoples and local communities in every country. This set of sessions will shine a spotlight on these efforts, showcasing success stories, highlighting challenges and obstacles, and showing pathways to scaling up local action to have global impacts.

Session 4.1 Equator Prize

We know that the business-as-usual model of how we produce and consume virtually everything – from food, water, medicine, fiber – is unsustainable, and has created our planetary emergency. We need new stories to guide us toward a new normal. The UNDP-led Equator Initiative is a partnership that recognizes and shines a spotlight on new stories that embody the future we need – on local, nature-based solutions that help achieve multiple sustainable development goals. In this session, ten winners will receive the Equator Prize. The celebration will feature remarks by decision makers, celebrities, and the winners themselves along with videos and music. The event will make a powerful case that local action on the three categories of the prize: “Nature for Climate,” “Nature for Water,” and “Nature for Prosperity” offers a powerful planetary response to our planetary emergency.

*Program may start a few minutes before or after the scheduled air time.
