Healthy landscapes are the foundation of human well-being. We depend on them for food, water, clean air, energy, livelihood and meaning. Despite their importance, the world’s landscapes are degrading at an alarming rate. Globally, two billion hectares are waiting to be restored. The good news is…it can be done!

The 4 Returns Platform is an online community of practitioners, policy makers, academics and environmental and business professionals. We are combining forces to regenerate degraded land on a planetary scale. Working together, we can all profit from 4 returns: inspiration, social, natural and financial capital.

Let’s build the foundation of a different world.
