The United Nations Ecosystem Restoration and #GenerationRestoration Campaign

by Diana Morgan 

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration is a global rallying cry originating from the belief that we only have ten more years to restore the planet. This sounds daunting, but there’s so much we can do, at an individual level or collectively, to make a big difference for the Climate Emergency.

Ecosystem Restoration involves helping to preserve intact ecosystems and to help the recovery of damaged or degraded areas. This can include planting suitable species or removing species that are inappropriate to a site. Restoring ecosystems in the sea or inland (in cities, towns, the countryside and waterways) can also help regenerate the economy.

We invite individuals, communities of all kinds, and businesses to apply to be part of our #GenerationRestoration campaign, by submitting an existing project or a completely new one. Please read through the Ecosystem Restoration Playbook then complete and send in a short application form, which will be reviewed by our team. We welcome projects whether micro, medium or large scale.

If eligible you will be sent a partner Certificate which can be used in your own publicity.  Once the project is completed you will receive an award. We can support you if you need help or clarification, and you will have access to a library of excellent graphics which you can adapt to your own project.
