Description

In support of the Equator Initiative and in recognition of Equator Prize 2017 winners, UNDP and partners are hosting a high-level reception to connect Equator Prize winners with government officials, senior UN staff, business and civil society leaders, thought leaders, as well as celebrities and media.

This invitation-only reception, in advance of the Equator Prize 2017 Award Ceremony, will be a unique opportunity for Equator Initiative supporters and global influencers to meet the winners, hear their stories, and discuss potential synergies to further advance their work and shared interests.

The reception will also serve to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Equator Initiative partnership, recognizing community efforts to reduce poverty through the conservation and sustainable use of nature.

This event will take place from 5.00 PM to 6.30 PM, immediately followed by the Equator Prize 2017 Award Ceremony, held from 7.00 PM to 9.00 PM at the Town Hall Theater, 123 W 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036, a five minute walk from Bryant Park Grill.

About the Equator Prize 2017

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.
