Goal 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss

“Deforestation and desertification – caused by human activities and climate change – pose major challenges to sustainable development and have affected the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in the fight against poverty. Efforts are being made to manage forests and combat desertification.”

Just as life below water, Life on Land is in need of awareness. Exploration and artistic intervention can help achieve this. For example, there is a growing disconnection between consumers, the origin of their food and our impact to the eco system. By connecting people to ‘the land’, it’s stories, history and the professionals working both in agriculture and in nature, art projects can create new relationships between the individual and nature, creating a sense of direct responsibility and influence.
