TGSVII Leaders Forum Tokyo Schedule

The 6th mass extinction also referred to the Anthropocene extinction along with Climate change are the two single most defining moments in our short human history.

We’ve been witnessing a renewed push to protect the last remaining pristine natural ecosystems from many different stakeholders. In the public’s eyes, it is the environmental NGOs that have been leading this fight. On the ground, it is the ones who identify with nature.

Representing about 5% of the human population and living on 25% of earth’s surface where 80% of terrestrial biodiversity is found, Indigenous Peoples have demonstrated how to live in symbiosis with Nature.
This panel will explore paths to preserve biodiversity, from knowledge-based systems to governance.

Indigenous Peoples:

Represent about 5% of the global population
>370 million 5,000 distinct cultures
½ of living languages
½ live in a tribal system
Inhabit 25% of earth’s terrestrial land
Where 80% of the world’s biodiversity is found
