Under the banner of Generation Restoration, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) are launching the third edition of the Restoration Stewards program to support and highlight the work of young restoration practitioners and their teams, who represent the next group of ‘Restoration Stewards’. The year-long program provides funding, mentorship, and training to deepen the impact of youth-led restoration projects. 

During the program, the Restoration Stewards and their teams are supported to further develop their project and become ambassadors at both global and local levels. Globally, the Restoration Stewards share their journey in a series of vlogs and blogs documenting their stories of inspiration and challenges. Locally, they commit to spark a restoration movement, creating pathways to connect, share, learn, and act for more sustainable landscapes

What is restoration?

In line with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, restoration means preventing, halting and reversing the degradation of ecosystems worldwide.

Under the banner of Generation Restoration, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) launched the Restoration Stewards program in 2020 to support and highlight the work of six young restoration practitioners and their teams, dubbed ‘Restoration Stewards’. The year-long program provides funding, mentorship, and training to deepen the impact of these projects.
In 2021, the Restoration Stewards and their teams will be supported to further develop their project and will become ambassadors at both global and local levels. Globally, the Restoration Stewards will share their journey in a series of vlogs and blogs documenting their stories of inspiration and challenges. Locally, they will spark a restoration movement, creating pathways to connect, share, learn, and act for more sustainable landscapes.
