Recording: Life on a Reforested Planet, Mar 10, 2023

Regrowing the planet’s forests on a massive scale this decade will change everything about life in 2050. Achieving planetary-scale reforestation and ecosystem restoration will substantially reduce the impacts of climate change, establish novel industries and green economies based on thriving natural systems, and create new jobs in forestry, forest tech, and beyond.

Reaching this forested future will require innovation to spur the speed and scale of restoration, actively monitor the health of the new forests and other revitalized ecosystems, and establish the human networks these ecosystems need to survive for the long term.

This panel is about envisioning life on a reforested planet, and the path we need to get there.
