Universities restoring nature – Join the Alliance of Nature-Positive Universities
UNEP and the University of Oxford are launching a global network of Nature Positive Universities in order to prompt the prioritization of nature and its restoration within the higher education sector; in their operations and supply chains, on campuses and within the cities where they operate. This network will form a major contribution to the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration, the post-2020 Biodiversity Framework and the Sustainable Development Goals.
We need to move urgently from degrading nature to restoring it. Universities have a substantial role to play in this quest for nature-positivity: They nurture the minds of future leaders, create knowledge as well as networks of thinkers, and directly impact the planet as land-holders and consumers of resources. Uniting universities for ecosystem restoration has impact beyond the walls of any given institution, into the wider community within which they are embedded, and beyond.
