Humanity is on track for 2.4°C of global warming by 2100 – but we can still prevent that by promoting healthy, sustainable landscapes. In 2021, we brought together over 24,000 participants from over 160 countries at our events to identify solutions to tackle the greatest challenges of our time: from climate change to biodiversity loss to Indigenous rights. We offered funding, mentorship and training to deepen the impact of six youth-led land restoration projects across the world. And since we began in 2013, we’ve reached more than 1 billion people across our global and social media networks.
BUT WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO KEEP THIS MOVEMENT ALIVE
Your donation allows us to make the GLF inclusive by providing a stage to voices that all too often go unheard. It allows us to offer solidarity tickets to those who otherwise could not attend and organize watch parties in areas with limited internet access. It also helps support local, community-led action on the ground, as well as train the landscape professionals of tomorrow.
Under the banner of Generation Restoration, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) are launching the second edition of the Restoration Stewards program to support and highlight the work of five young restoration practitioners and their teams, who will represent the next group of ‘Restoration Stewards’. The year-long program will provide funding, mentorship, and training to deepen the impact of five youth-led restoration projects.
