World Environment Day with the team: A tree-planting project tour of the Cerro Tecana forest

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.

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.

The Restoration Stewards program provides funding, mentorship and training to deepen the impact of youth-led restoration projects. The year-long program is run by the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) under the banner of Generation Restoration to support and highlight the work of eight young restoration practitioners and their teams in 2023.

During the program, the Restoration Stewards and their teams are  supported to further develop their project and serve as ambassadors at both global and local levels. Globally, the Restoration Stewards share their journeys in a series of vlogs and blogs documenting their stories of inspiration and challenges and participate in different international events to showcase their work. Locally, they are sparking a restoration movement, mobilizing local communities and creating pathways to connect, share, learn, and act for livelihoods and landscapes.
