We had the opportunity to meet international film-maker John D. Liu at COP22 in Marrakech, Morocco and learn about his vision for a global network of Ecosystem Restoration Cooperatives and Camps. Not unlike woofing, these camps of multi-national volunteers provide an avenue to rebuild soil organic matter, restore local watersheds and recover biodiversity all while having fun in a cooperative, multi-age setting.
The successful regeneration of China’s Loess Plateau, Jordan’s Royal Botanic Garden and Rwanda’s highlands, provide evidence that highly degraded landscapes can indeed be restored at scale. The first Ecosystem Restoration Camp is scheduled to launch in the Altiplano region in Spain.
