Our video of the month looks at the Green Corridor Initiative in Medellin, Colombia. It shows how transforming green spaces in cities can be a driver for social change and greater quality of life, together with many other benefits.
Some see the Amazon as a resource to preserve, a critical part of vital global eco-functions. Others see it as an untapped development opportunity, needed to solve serious socio-economic issues. This Bloomberg Quicktake video take us into the Amazon and the complex interplay of different actors and interests. The same tensions are repeated in other parts of the world, in a mix of structural issues, power games by political and economic agents and the legitimate aspirations of many people for a better life.
Disclaimer: we don’t want to advertise for Telus, a telecom from Canada! We just think that this video nicely presents how modern data collection can increase our understanding of Nature and support conservation and restoration efforts. But how can we make use of this “big data” world?
Primal nature: who does not like it? This video from Rewilding Europe offers us a captivating glimpse of how wild Europe could be again. But how can we successfully integrate it with tourism and landscape management?
This humorous “Behind the scenes” is part of Under the Canopy a fantastic 360° Virtual Reality movie produced by Conservation International. A great way to visit the Amazon forest, particularly in these times of lockdown!
Nature-based solutions are a great way of including healthy ecosystems into the strategies to combat climate change. As this video highlights, there are many benefits brought by Nature, at a scale that is hard for us to match with technological solutions.
What on Earth is ‘reforestation’? It’s more than just planting trees, as explained in this video by Conservation International. As detailed in their nice Q&A article, and being discussed right now in Davos at the WEF2020, it is also a critical tool to stop climate change.
“What the world needs (…) is an agricultural system that the consequence of management is to increase biodiversity, not diminish it” – David Marsh, Australian cattle farmer. This month’s video shows us how Marsh and other farmers have adopted regenerative agriculture as a way to restore the land and improve their own lives. Agriculture is a crucial aspect of human existence and this shift is an urgent one. The video and recommended book are strong reminders that we can work to restore many things at once.
