On October 22, 2018, Half-Earth Project champions discussed actions and fielded questions from capacity crowds at the American Museum of Natural History about how we get to half. Half-Earth Day brings together people from around the world and across disciplines to share their unique perspective and thought leadership on how we can successfully ensure the health of our planet for future generations.
Prof. Chen Jin of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) attended the Half-Earth: Learning from Local Stewards, one of Half-Earth Day Sessions. He was one of the panelists focusing on “How are indigenous peoples and local communities leading the way in nature stewardship?”
The Half-Earth Day 2018 explores how indigenous peoples and local community’s visions and ongoing initiatives can inform conservation, and how collaboration with these communities is key to the success of conservation efforts.
