What our participants say

"The 2022 Nature for Life Hub was eye-opening! It helped me understand better how our usual ways of growing the economy aren't good for nature. The sessions pushed us to measure success differently, respecting our planet's limits while ensuring everyone's well-being. The sessions invited participants to think about changing the whole game, not just development but also our connection with nature. And the most interesting part? Using maps and data to put nature right at the center of how we grow sustainably. I am looking forward to participating in the 2023 Nature Hub chapter."

- Gabriel Jaramillo, UNDP

"I enjoyed each and every session, especially implementation through SDG and local level communities. It was a very enriching experience. Outstanding speakers with detailed presentations, a nice breadth of topics and responses to queries. Thank you for a very fruitful and interactive event."

- Anupam Kumar Pandey, Climate Interactive

"The Nature for Life Hub is a platform where we can learn, engage and be part of the global campaign for biodiversity conservation and protection of nature for future generations."

- Sunil Manandhar, Land Our Future

Creating Restored Plant Communities More Resistant to Invasion | 6 February 2024

Restoration ecology aims to creating successful and resistant plant communities. A better scientific understanding of plant interactions and how plant communities are built, helps creating restored communities more resistant to invasion. This avoids the need of controlling non-native invasive species and reduce costs of restoration. We will present an overview about the need to create communities more resistant to invasion, and on invasive species control in restoration, and how plant-fungi interactions can be used as a tool to reduce invasive species.
