We challenged three specialists to host three talks/debates about three of the planet’s most important ecosystems: Forests, Oceans and Sweet Water.

In this dialogue, accompanied by “Our Planet” documentaries, we will have the chance to clarify doubts and to understand how we can collectively create a future where we can live in harmony with nature.
