Healthy landscapes 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.

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.
