Join the Cities4Forests Webinar Photo Challenge

Cities4Forests helps cities from around the world connect with and invest in inner forests (such as city trees and urban parks), nearby forests (such as green corridors and watersheds) and faraway forests (such as tropical and boreal forests). We support our cities to better conserve, manage, and restore these forests. And we provide technical assistance to align local policies, knowledge exchange and peer-to-peer learning, and communication activities for our cities to take climate action together.

At the start of a new decade – the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration – our collective challenge as humanity is more obvious than ever before: how to live in greater harmony with nature. Cities4Forests is organizing a digital photo contest on Instagram and Facebook to encourage residents of our founding cities to reconnect with nature!

The Cities4Forests communication team will explain the global photo contest criteria, the benefits of participating and how to engage your city and community. You will have the opportunity to share your views, ask questions and get inputs for your campaigns.

Join us in connecting cities and forests for a healthier world!
