Are you ready to discover the game-changing Miyawaki afforestation technique?
Developed by renowned Japanese botanist and plant ecology expert, Professor Akira Miyawaki, this groundbreaking method draws inspiration from nature’s ecosystems to create 100% organic, dense, and diverse pioneer forests in just 20-30 years.
Imagine forests that grow 10x faster, are 30x denser, and contain 100x more biodiversity than traditional afforestation methods. It’s not just a dream, it’s the reality of the Miyawaki forests.
In this must-attend session, our expert speakers will elaborate on the success story of the Miyawaki method and how it was inspired by the Autobahn forests and conserved Urwald in Germany and the Netherlands. You’ll also discover why the most stable forests occur on stable topography with mesic, rich soil and good drainage. These forests serve as habitats for mammals and birds, mitigate disasters such as fire, tsunami, flood and more, and protect against wind, salt spray, sand, noise, dust and other environmental concerns, addressing various SDG goals.
There is more. The speakers will shed light on stable forests, their definition and significance, and their relationship to the Miyawaki technique.
Join us as we explore contemporary and effective methods to restore our planet. Register now for the G20 Global Land Initiative’s third hybrid Brown Bag Lunch about Reforesting Our World with Children for Millennia.
