Forest Trends is turning twenty!
For two decades, Forest Trends has pioneered the idea that creating economic value in our forests and natural ecosystems is one of the most powerful strategies for protecting these places.
That idea has taken us to incredible places.
We incubated a fledgling movement promoting “natural infrastructure” for water and climate security in Peru that is now national policy. We’ve helped build supply chains in Southeast Asia that create new economic opportunities for rural communities and keep the region’s vast forests intact. We launched a “Rainforest-to-Table” culinary movement in the Amazon working with celebrity chefs, scientists, activists, and entrepreneurs to protect the region’s unparalleled biodiversity. And that’s just our last few years!
Your attendance supports the next twenty years of Forest Trends’ pioneering work.
Please join us for an evening of inspiring ideas, music, art, and great food to celebrate all of our incredible partners and think together about the road ahead.
