About PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet

Uniting Changemakers for a Sustainable Tomorrow

PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet is a partnership initiative, grounded in our vision:

A global community where changemakers share, adopt, and scale-up inspiring Solutions for a healthy planet

At PANORAMA, we bring to life the ideal of global learning through local Solutions, fostering an environment where cross-sectoral inspiration and global innovation thrive.


A Decade of Transforming Knowledge into Action

For over a decade, PANORAMA has stood as a beacon of knowledge and stands as a testament to the power of shared knowledge in overcoming environmental challenges. Our journey aligns with major global directives like the Kunming-Montréal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), the Paris Agreement, and the UN Agenda 2030, turning local and regional Solutions into global change-makers.


The Essence of Our Multifaceted Approach

1. Informing Decision-Making: At the core of PANORAMA is the aim to infuse biodiversity and climate considerations into diverse sectors like agriculture, restoration, and urban planning. We provide actionable insights and evidence-based Solutions, enabling policymakers and practitioners to forge paths aligned with global sustainability goals.

2. Integrated Knowledge Management: Our approach is a kaleidoscope of knowledge-sharing strategies. Unique in our breadth and depth, PANORAMA encompasses all knowledge management strategies of the GBF. We blend a cutting-edge digital platform with interactive knowledge exchanges and robust networking, offering a comprehensive and effective approach to knowledge management.

3. Diverse & Cross-Cutting Thematic Scope: Our platform is a mosaic of 11 communities, each a universe in itself. From marine and coastal issues to nature-culture, from species conservation to one health, PANORAMA serves as a melting pot for cross-disciplinary learning and exchange.

4. The Art of “Solution-ing”: Each Solution we showcase is a narrative of success, unraveling the 'how' and 'why' behind effective environmental initiatives. This methodology distills case studies into essential, replicable building blocks, offering adaptable blueprints for action. These Solutions are:

  • Practical and Tailored: Covering entire projects or key facets, they are stepwise, adaptable blueprints, applicable to varied scenarios. 
  • Relevant and Aligned: Directly tackling sustainability and well-being challenges, our Solutions contribute to global ecological health, aligning with frameworks like the Kunming-Montréal GBF, the Paris Agreement, and the SDGs.
  • Proven and Impactful: Demonstrating real-world effectiveness, these Solutions offer tested strategies for conservation and sustainability.
  • Flexible and Extensible: Contextually grounded yet broadly applicable, they provide scalable elements for a range of environments and sectors.

5. Bridging Local Knowledge and Global Policy: Valuing the power of grassroots knowledge, PANORAMA amplifies local voices, integrating them into significant policy forums. This approach ensures that diverse perspectives contribute to and influence global environmental policy.

6. Empowering Peer-to-Peer Exchange: We champion peer-to-peer learning, transforming tacit knowledge into explicit, shareable wisdom. This facilitates direct relevance and easy knowledge transfer, empowering individuals to share and grow together.
