There are many complexities in environmental policy but societal shifts are a key focus of Chatham House research, such as reducing global meat consumption, developing a circular economy in which products are recycled, repaired or reused, and improving the sustainable management of natural resources such as water, forestry and timber, and fossil fuels as part of a more resilient ecosystem.
- Chatham House

Each year trillions of dollars are funneled into climate-destroying projects – from deforestation to unsustainable agribusiness and digging up and burning fossil fuels. As world leaders make new climate commitments for decades down the road, the real culprits of the climate crisis – climate-wrecking industries and their financial backers – slip under the radar and continue to wreak havoc on our planet and natural habitats.

- Global Witness

The future’s not determined, the future is in our hands; what happens over the next centuries will be determined by how we play our cards this decade.
- Professor Johan Rockström

Breaking Boundaries

Make A difference

In Barking Up The Rite Tree, history, geography, science, maths and politics come together to influence our thinking and help us come up with solutions to today’s pressing environmental and human rights issues. Use it and give the thousands of students who went on school strike across Ireland in 2019 some hope that we can make a difference – that their ‘rite of passage’ to a safe, clean and abundant planet is possible.

WOODOFLIFE GOALS

local links to global challenges

On an international platform Barking Up The Rite Tree supports TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Just Forests WOODOFLIFE Goals are a combination of the UN Global Goals (SDGs), the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) and our very popular Wood of Life hands-on exhibition panels. They will link very clearly to all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aims to create a world in which consumption and production patterns and use of all natural resources – from air to land, from rivers, to lakes and acquirers to oceans to seas – are sustainable. The SDGs are the global communities response to the most pressing and most urgent economic, social and environmental problems facing society today, from climate change to loss of biodiversity, global poverty, inequality and basic human-rights. The WOODOFLIFE Goals brings a very ‘local’ focus to a very ‘global’ problem.
