Vlog: Mangrove – site assessment

15 June 2021
Frances Camille Rivera

Weeks before the lockdown in our hometown, we visited different municipalities and potential sites for mangrove restoration and talked to different locals about existing and past programs on restoration work. It was nice to connect with people again, of course with social distancing, and witness the work they have been doing during the pandemic. We shared our project, and connect on how best we can work together and mobilize more people to understand why we need diverse mangroves as a nature-based solution for climate adaptation, and a possible livelihood for them especially that the areas we visited were typhoon-stricken areas.

Watch our 5-min blog below to see what we’ve been up to!

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.
