Deforestation and forest degradation are major factors behind escalating climate events. Scientists also agree that forests are as much as 30% of the solution to climate change and host the majority of the world’s plant, amphibian, bird, and mammal species. Join us live from the COP15 Biological Diversity Conference in Montreal where we are demanding the end to extraction from Ancient and Endangered Forests by 2030, and connecting the dots between forest health and our future on this planet.

Peter Wood, Ph.D, Canopy’s Senior Scientist, and Amanda Carr, Canopy’s Director of Strategic Initiatives will talk about the importance of forests in the face of the climate crisis, what is at stake at this year’s summit in Montreal, and how Canopy uses science as a guidepost to implement solutions and mobilize brand power at these global climate and biodiversity summits.

Our future is at stake – don't miss this opportunity to have an insider’s peek into what Canopy is doing behind the scenes.
