Cerro Tecana is a deciduous forest part of a biological corridor of hills that surrounds the city of Santa Ana, in El Salvador. For many years, it has been affected by forest fires and degradation caused by agricultural activities and urbanization. To combat this scenario, the organization Un Pulmón Más was founded, by a group of young people from Santa Ana who have worked in environmental education, ecological tours, cleanups, and reforestation campaigns.

A day in the field – Building community through reforestation

This video footage,  mentions the activities we are carrying out as part of the Suma Un Bosque tree planting project that started in  April 2022. All these are made possible due to the funding, training, and mentorship support provided by the  Global Landscape Forum and Youth In Landscape Initiative. Thanks to the Restoration Stewards program.

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.
