Future of Forests XPRIZE competition

Circular Cities can change the future of forests.


XPRIZE has partnered with Kimberly-Clark Corporation and mapped the greatest challenges, trends and innovations in forest conservation with Future of Forests ImpactMap.

"Forest conservation is paramount to the survival of our species and planet. We need to find a fast, sustainable, and far-reaching solution if we want these vital habitats to survive." .

What is an ImpactMap?
The purpose of  an ImpactMap, is to identify and analyze existing and emerging challenges and key trends in sustainable forest development.

Each ImpactMap is supported by a community of experts from around the world collaborating to find the social, technological, economic, environmental, and political breakthroughs necessary to overcome a grand challenge and achieve a preferred future that balances all interests.


Was created six topic areas to organize breakthroughs that could help us achieve our preferred future of the forests. Circular City contributes to all of them.
