Nature Positive

Earth Room, Tuesday, 17 January, 2023, 19:30-22:00 CET

The combined loss of nature and climate change is threatening our health, our wellbeing, our societies and our economies. It is no longer a theory or a distant risk but something that is happening right here and now. The recent COP15 Kunming-Montreal Agreement commits the world to halting and reversing biodiversity loss by 2030. This must be the launch pad for action from governments, business, and society to transition towards a nature-positive world.

The ‘Nature Positive Dinner’ at Davos 2023 aims to be the impetus for the bold, wide-ranging and urgent action required to deliver a nature-positive world. We will dive into detail about how we can all contribute towards delivering the vision of more nature in 2030 than we had in 2020 through protection, restoration and sustainable use, and how to finance such a globally important and critical transition.  Action towards a nature-positive future must be swift and bold. We must all double down on nature-positive action as we move from discussion and negotiation to implementation, action and, most importantly, finance this delivery.
