Together we can Restore the Earth
Healthy, functional ecosystems illustrate that the Earth provides us with clean air, enough food, water, and energy - all that is needed for life to flourish. Unfortunately, these ecosystems are under great threat from human impact.
Be part of the great work of our time
Although this is the reality we are confronting, hope still lives in the minds of thousands of people all around the world. They are trying to restore what has been lost and contribute to the great work of our time. Under the guidance of John D. Liu (expert on ecological restoration) and with support from Regeneration International, the Permaculture Research Institute, the World Permaculture Association and the Commonland Foundation a large movement has grown by the hundreds since july 2016 and has culminated in the formation of the Ecosystem Restoration Cooperative.
About the Cooperative
The Cooperative’s objective is to finance and manage the work leading up to building the first Ecosystem Restoration Camp. This first camp will be financed by the founding members, each of whom contributes 10 euro per month to make this work possible.
The Ecological Restoration Cooperative includes a broad community of researchers, landscape designers, farmers, gardeners, engineers and many other professionals. We collectively set up an Ecosystem Restoration Camp and with each other's help they can restore the landscape around it. The world has many suitable areas where ecological landscape restoration is essential to regain environmental, social and economic value. There is great potential land, so there also is a role for you to play! Bring your expertise or become a founding member. Get informed and involved.
People from more than 70 countries have joined the Cooperative as founding members including many of the top Permaculture designers and trainers in the world. Rhamis Kent, Ben Falk, Jillian Hovey, Daniel Halsey, Albert Bates, Paul Cohen, May East, Mark Shepard, and many others already have pledged their support. We have also been joined by some of the leaders of Commonland.
