World Environment Day 2024: Join #GenerationRestoration!

Hey there, fellow earth lovers! 🌍 It’s that time of year again—World Environment Day is just around the corner on June 5th! This year, we’re incredibly excited because the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is hosting the global celebration, focusing on the critical issues of land restoration, desertification, and drought resilience. Join us as we dive into this year’s theme, #GenerationRestoration, and discover how we can all contribute to healing our planet.

Understanding #GenerationRestoration

So, what’s the buzz about #GenerationRestoration? It’s all about coming together to restore our precious ecosystems. Did you know that up to 40% of the planet’s land is degraded? This directly impacts half of the world’s population and threatens a whopping $44 trillion of global GDP! With the number and duration of droughts increasing by 29% since 2000, it’s clear we need urgent action to prevent these trends from worsening.

The Global Challenge of Land Degradation

Land degradation is a massive challenge we can’t ignore. When our land suffers, so does our ability to combat climate change, protect biodiversity, and ensure food security. The numbers are staggering—without intervention, an additional area almost the size of South America will become degraded, and droughts could affect over three-quarters of the world’s population by 2050, according to the UN. This World Environment Day, we’re rallying to make a difference and push for sustainable solutions.

Saudi Arabia’s Role in #GenerationRestoration

Saudi Arabia is stepping up in a big way this year. The nation is actively working to combat desertification and promote land restoration. Plus, they’re hosting the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) COP 16 in Riyadh this December. It’s a pivotal moment as 2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, making this year’s efforts more significant than ever.

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030)

We’re in the midst of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, a global call to revive and protect our ecosystems. This initiative is crucial for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It’s about more than just planting trees—it’s about restoring forests, grasslands, wetlands, and more, ensuring a healthier planet for future generations. But it only works if we all get involved! As the UN put it: 

“The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. It can help to end poverty, combat climate change and prevent a mass extinction. It will only succeed if everyone plays a part.”

 

How You Can Be Part of #GenerationRestoration

So far, the 2024 edition of World Environment Day has been a success! Today’s celebrations featured a record-breaking number of events—3657 at the time of launch—organized by governments, cities, civil society, universities and educational institutions, and corporations all across the world
