Leaders for Nature and People Event: Supporting an emergency declaration for nature and people in 2020
23 Sep 2019 -  This high-profile event on the evening after the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit aims to address the Planetary Emergency by galvanizing political leadership behind nature and people at the highest possible level. More specifically it will provide an opportunity for leaders to:
Discuss and publicly support the need for an Emergency Declaration for Nature and People. This Declaration – to be signed by Heads of State and Government by September 2020 - will send a strong, united political signal that supports ambitious outcomes on climate, biodiversity, oceans and the SDGs in 2020.
Showcase commitments to addressing the Planetary Emergency that the world is currently facing. Addressing an emergency requires concrete and urgent action, which in this case will aim to reverse the loss of nature by 2030 for the benefit of all people everywhere.
The event will also feature a message from Sir David Attenborough to World Leaders.
