Event description

Description

The Equator Prize, organized by the Equator Initiative partnership, hosted by the United Nations Development Programme, is awarded biennially to recognize outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of nature.

The 15 Equator Prize 2017 winners are protecting, restoring and sustainably managing marine, forest, grassland, dryland and wetland ecosystems. In the process, they have created several thousand jobs and livelihoods, improved food and water security for hundreds of communities, protected endangered wildlife, and decreased risks from natural disasters. The communities reinvest revenues generated by their initiatives into water supply, education, women’s economic training and other development goals.

Join us to celebrate the next generation of outstanding local community initiatives for sustainable development, on the eve of the United Nations General Assembly, in the iconic Town Hall Theater in Midtown Manhattan, close to Bryant Park and Times Square.

Please note: While a ticket confirms you are registered to attend, attendance is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors will be open at 6:15pm.
