Around 75% of the Earth’s land and 85% of wetlands bear the imprint of human activities, endangering roughly one million of the planet’s eight million species, according to IPBES. The “UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration” spanning 2021-2030 underscores the pressing need for ecosystem revival.
In Europe, the EU Biodiversity Strategy seeks to halt biodiversity loss by 2030, addressing the dire state of over 80% of EU habitats.
This project aims to address this century’s challenge and actively protect and restore nature, aligning with surveys indicating that combatting climate change and environmental degradation ranks high among global youth priorities.
This project aims to provide youth organizations and workers with tools to promote nature restoration as a means for youth-oriented educational and informal learning and volunteering activities, while inspiring young people to become active citizens and environmental leaders.
