Healthy landscapes are the foundation for our societies. They provide food, water, clean air, stable climate, shelter, energy, livelihoods, life and meaning. Unfortunately, landscapes across the globe are degrading at a rapid rate.

We believe that landscape restoration offers tremendous untapped opportunities for sustainable economic development. Globally, about 2 billion hectares can be restored.

It is necessary. It is possible. We want to contribute to it.

And we know that in order to successfully do so, we need to combine forces and connect ecology and economy.

That’s why we have taken the initiative for this learning platform: to enable a global community of academics, practitioners, policy makers, environmental and business professionals to meet each other and to share and exchange their knowledge, expertise and first-hand experiences with landscape restoration.
