Patricia Dávila Aranda and Tiziana Ulian in conversation with Cecilia Barría

Imagine Climate Emergency. The power of trees

Querétaro 2022, 

Mexico is currently one of ten priority countries for the Kew Science botanical organization. The Kew Royal Botanic Gardens (United Kingdom) has focussed its efforts in tree planting, following the principles of reforestation set down in the Right Tree, Right Place guide. In 2021, Kew published 10 Golden Rules for Restoring Forests, which has been welcomed and praised around the world. This project has been supported by P&G’s Herbal Essences brand in order to help small farmers recover and reforest degraded areas with native trees, increasing biodiversity and conserving important and vulnerable ecosystems, such as tropical montane cloud forest and the pine and oak woods of Veracruz. At this event, our expert guests will talk about the power of trees and the importance of creating healthy relationships with nature. Patricia Dávila Aranda, Secretary of Institutional Development at UNAM, and Tiziana Ulian, a Senior Researcher and expert in sustainability at Kew, will talk to Cecilia Barría.
