Solutions for nature and people

An impression of the SRJS final event

How do we bring local communities, governments, and businesses together to achieve joint solutions that benefit both nature and people?

On November 26 2020, we organised the final event of our Shared Resources Joint Solutions-programme. To celebrate the successes achieved by our local partners across the globe, to reflect on lessons learned and remaining challenges, and to look for future collaborations.

The event was filled with inspiring speakers and honest discussions, livened up by artistic performances. All this was accompanied by music from the Dutch Surinam artist Denise Jannah, who wrote a song especially for our programme! Listen to Promise To Wanaisa, Mother Earth.
