  • Nature works for us! Show us how nature works for us all or what would happen without the services of nature!
  • Feeding the world sustainably – Celebrating the International Year of Family Farming. Show the importance of family farms, small-scale agriculture, traditional knowledge, and the need for more sustainable agriculture and more responsible consumers’ choice!.
  • Fighting climate change and disasters with natural solutions. Show how climate change threatens us, how we can fight climate change with simple, natural solutions and what existing solutions there are in the world already.
