Maintenance work in Ecological Restoration processes


Tree planting is not a simple solution to achieve the recovery of degraded areas. After planting we need maintenance activities to ensure that the trees will successfully grow. In this video, the Biologist Carlos Salazar presents us the hard work of the maintance activity in the mountains of Villahermosa, Tolima, where we replanted 240 trees and we did 1.100 weeding seedlings.

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.
