Shifting the Paradigm Forum 2019
World Wildlife Fund
Grant Stream: Resilient Greenbelt
Grant Approved: Spring 2019
Shifting the Paradigm 2019 is a day-long forum led by the World Wildlife Fund designed to stimulate cross-sector conversations and actions that will accelerate progress towards creating healthy landscapes and resilient communities in southern Ontario's Carolinian Eco-zone, and in the Greenbelt, more specifically. The 2019 forum advanced the discussion by connecting three streams of work (protected areas, green investment, and habitat restoration) around a common strategic agenda: reverse biodiversity loss, expand protected areas, restore native habitat, and engage the broader Social Finance sector in scoping and crafting opportunities for social investment.
