Call to action for a wilder Europe

Nature recovery: a key solution for our climate and biodiversity emergencies

12 December 2019, rewilding organisations from 15 different European countries are calling for a wilder Europe and the inclusion of rewilding in the European Green Deal and EU Biodiversity Strategy post-2020. This has the potential to significantly mitigate climate change and reverse biodiversity decline.

11th of December EU commissioner Frans Timmermans presented the European Green Deal in Brussels. While this document is very ambitious on climate actions, ATNatureza believes with Rewilding Europe, that the deal should place far more emphasis on nature-based solutions and large-scale nature recovery to help tackle both the current climate and biodiversity emergencies.

By providing and enhancing nature-based solutions, rewilding can help to mitigate and overcome a whole range of societal challenges. Working with nature can – in a timely and cost-effective way – protect us from flooding and coastal erosion, minimise the threat of wildfire, secure drinking water supplies, ensure human health and wellbeing, and drive economic growth. Rewilding is also one of the most practical and cost-effective ways of mitigating climate change, and helps to boost climate resilience. For more information: https://rewildingeurope.com/news/nature-recovery-a-key-solution-for-our-climate-and-biodiversity-emergencies/
