Reconnecting with the living for sustainable humanity

The third annual Forest Month in 2021 will focus on the theme of restoring ecosystems, as Reforest’Action takes another look at the relationship between human societies and life in all its forms. How did we become disconnected from Nature down the centuries, and how has this schism not proved fatal? How can we create sustainable humanity, in harmony with natural ecosystems? Part philosophy and part ecology, reconnecting to the living is essential when thinking about tomorrow’s world.

Protect and restore the world's forests, two urgent and complementary actions

Although forests provide us with invaluable services every day, they are still affected by deforestation at a pace of 10 million hectares deforested each year. Collective action to protect and restore forests is more urgent than ever. These actions, closely complementary and both urgently needed, will together provide a significant part of the global response to the climate and biodiversity crisis.

Ecosystem restoration: 5 questions about the Great Green Wall of the Sahel region

Since 2007, the Great Green Wall project, led by the African Union, aims to fight against the spread of the desert by restoring natural ecosystems within a 15 km wide and 7,800 km long strip that crosses eleven Sahelian countries. Originally conceived as a vegetal barrier to hold the desert back, the project now has a broader approach: sustainable management and restoration of these arid ecosystems. Fifteen years after its launch, how is the Great Green Wall evolving? What challenges does it face and what are its future prospects? Discover the project through five questions.

Pierre Hermans : "The European forest is multifunctional by nature"

Although European forests do not face the same challenges as tropical forests do, they are nonetheless affected by degradation phenomena, caused, in particular, by climate change. What roles do European forests play in our lives and what challenges do they face? Why do they need to be restored to ensure their sustainability and multifunctionality ? Pierre Hermans, consultant and specialist in European projects for Reforest'Action, shares his expertise and reminds us that the continuous search for forest balance is what makes his job so interesting.

The threats facing forests

The forest is a common heritage, oh-so necessary for humanity but highly threatened. In spite of a collective awareness, tropical forests continue to be victims of intensive deforestation, mainly due to our consumption patterns. At the same time, forests in temperate zones are affected by hazards which are only increasing and directly linked to climate change. On the occasion of the "Forest Month", learn more about the two main types of threats facing the world's forests.​

Act every day to preserve forests

The demand linked to our consumption patterns is pushing farmers outside our borders and can lead to deforestation. But it doesn't have to be that way ! We can all take action in our daily lives. Acting for the forests means being more aware of what we are buying, as well as consuming less and better by choosing production methods that do not lead to deforestation.​

Contribute to restoring and expanding forests

If changing our habits is necessary to preserve our forests, it is also as essential to restore and extend them. Participating in reforestation projects means, first of all, helping to meet the main global challenges that will shape the future of humanity : climate change and the erosion of biodiversity.
