Wat is de Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation?

Er zijn veel non-profit organisaties die zich met ecosysteem herstel bezighouden. In dit gesprek lichten we er een uit.

Volgens hun website Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation is:

Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation is a Dutch non-profit foundation with hundreds of members from over 30 countries around the world, and we continue to grow. In 2017 we established Camp Altiplano, the first Ecosystem Restoration Camp in Spain, and now have a camp on every continent. Our aim is to open 100 camps by 2030.

En dit is de manier waarop ze het doen:

Our vision
We envision a fully-functional, peaceful, abundant, biologically diverse Earth brought about through cooperative efforts for the ecological restoration of degraded lands.

Plus een beschrijving van de missie:

Our Mission
To work together to restore ecological functionality, to build Research, Training and Innovation Centers for Ecological Restoration, to engage people in inquiry into ecological restoration, and train people in how to restore degraded lands in perpetuity.

Objectives:

  • To train people in techniques for restoring land and provide practical opportunities for people to practice new approaches to landscape restoration.
  • To build research, training and innovation centers to engage people in ecosystem restoration.
  • To manage a flow of volunteers of all ages to restore agricultural and natural ecosystems.
  • To increase the organic matter, carbon content and water retention capacity of the soil to stimulate large scale carbon sequestration.
  • To improve the livelihoods of farmers, landowners and local communities around the camps.
