Our Planet: Our Impact
In its first year, the Our Planet project reached hundreds of millions of people around the world, through the series as well as digital content, media, education projects and partnerships. The series, which had a truly global audience, won critical acclaim and prompted discussions at the highest levels about how to protect our planet for the next generation.
