Ecosystem Restoration: Global Initiatives in Science and Practice

The Ecosystem Restoration Thematic Group (ERTG) of IUCN’s Commission on Ecosystem Management (IUCN CEM) is convening a monthly webinar series, "Ecosystem Restoration: Global Initiatives in Science and Practice" beginning in February 2019.

The objective of the webinar series is to provide a forum for IUCN and CEM members to gain insight and knowledge about ecological restoration and to provide opportunities for networking and direct engagement. 

Each month, a different speaker will give a 40-minute presentation on their work, related to one of four themes:

  1. global initiatives in ecological restoration;
  2. syntheses of accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities in ecological restoration within specific regions of the globe;
  3. technical guidance on prioritization, implementation, and monitoring of restoration activities, and
  4. identification of critical gaps and brainstorm of potential new initiatives and projects.

Webinars will be held the 3rd Friday of each month from 12 to 1 pm Eastern EST using the platform “Zoom”. The series is open to all IUCN and CEM members, and quarterly for the Global Initiatives themes, we will convene jointly with an ongoing “Pulse-of-the-Planet” series conducted by NatureServe, GEO BON and EcoHealth Alliance networks initiative.   

You can register once for all recurring monthly sessions. We look forward to your participation!
