A home for countless species

Earth,the only known Planet supporting life in our solar system, extends beyond being merely a habitat for humans. It is a complex and vibrant ecosystem that has served as a home for countless species for millions of years, intricately interwoven in a dynamic web of life. However, our understanding of the interconnectedness of all living beings has dimmed over time, leading to an overshoot of the Planet’s regenerative capacity, triggering unprecedented climatic extremes. Recent research reveals we have breached six of the nine planetary boundaries essential for our safe existence on this Planet (Science, 2023).

This challenging context calls for a profound shift in our mindset and actions towards more holistic approaches, including living systems thinking and the integration of nature-based solutions, to effectively address the underlying drivers of environmental degradation at its core.
