Near-Urban Nature Network: A Solution for Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss
Digital Information Session | July 27, 12:00-1:15PM EST
Please join us on July 27, 12:00-1:15PM for an in-depth look at the Near-Urban Nature Network: A Solution for Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss.
With support from the Government of Canada and Government of Ontario, the Southern Ontario Nature Coalition (SONC) has released its Final and Technical reports, sharing important insights generated through its ground-breaking Near-Urban Nature Network.
Near-Urban Nature Network: A Solution to Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss provides key recommendations for federal and provincial governments and community-oriented calls-to-action, which will help all levels of government to protect near-urban nature across the country.
Throughout the information session, coalition members will dive into the Report’s recommendations and share insights into the short and long-term opportunities to protect, restore, and manage natural areas and ecological corridors in the near-urban landscape that will deliver multi-faceted benefits, to commit to Indigenous-led conservation, and support the investments made by the Government of Canada to conserve 25 per cent of Canada’s lands, freshwater, and oceans by 2025, working toward 30 per cent by 2030.
