Description

Ecosystem Restoration Camps’ mission is to work together to restore ecological functionality, to build Research, Training and Innovation Centers for Ecological Restoration, to engage people in inquiry into ecological restoration, and train people in how to restore degraded lands in perpetuity.

Objectives:

  • To train people in techniques for restoring land and provide practical opportunities for people to practice new approaches to landscape restoration.
  • To build research, training and innovation centers to engage people in ecosystem restoration.
  • To manage a flow of volunteers of all ages to restore agricultural and natural ecosystems.
  • To increase the organic matter, carbon content and water retention capacity of the soil to stimulate large scale carbon sequestration.
  • To improve the livelihoods of farmers, landowners and local communities around the camps.

Why Ecosystem Restoration Camps?

Sequestering the excess carbon in our atmosphere on a massive scale is one of the last remaining solutions to staving off the worst effects of climate change. By rehabilitating degraded ecosystems and helping farmers convert from industrial to regenerative agriculture, we can sequester enough carbon to create a safe level in the atmosphere (350ppm).

The camps will help to create action towards this solution by teaching large numbers of people how to restore degraded land, whilst giving them the opportunity to work with local farmers who need support in transitioning to regenerative agriculture. At the camp, people will  acquire the knowledge and information they need in order to put theory into practice. This gives farmers who are struggling financially the ability to try regenerative techniques, thanks to the voluntary manual labour, and gives people valuable experience in landscape restoration. Ecosystem Restoration Camps has the potential to give millions of people around the world the chance to reconnect with the natural world, causing ripple effects as they bring this knowledge and connection back into towns and cities across the globe.
