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.
Local action on nature is essential if we are to bend the curve on nature loss. Yet isolated actions often lack the impact required to have meaningful change at scale. We must find ways to accelerate and magnify local action, and to scale up impact. This session will feature seven lightning talks on how successful local initiatives were able to scale up their initiative and create larger impact at a broader scale. This session also includes an interactive dialogue that identifies common themes, preconditions and pathways to accelerate the scaling up of local initiatives in order to tackle our planetary emergency, culminating in a collection of partner commitments to help scale up local solutions, including scaling up through policies and legal frameworks; through learning, dialogue and replication; through finance and funding; and through expansion of existing pilots, among others.
