ISTF 2020 calls for progressive approaches to restoration that shift the paradigm of tropical forest management: projects led by and truly inclusive of those most affected by forest loss; concrete proposals that promote ecological resilience and combat colonial legacies; compelling storytelling that confronts power and impacts policy; research that reflects real development needs; development interventions that are backed by evidence.
The conference will bring together scientists, practitioners, activists, policy makers, artists, journalists, and forest-dwelling people from around the world. We seek to inspire the well-informed, holistic, and creative action needed to restore forests and change society. Exploring both traditional practices and innovative recent approaches, we’re looking for equitable and effective solutions. Driven by questions of restoration for what and for whom, our interdisciplinary group will build a platform to address the question of how, as we plan for the upcoming decade and beyond.
