Under the banner of Generation Restoration, the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL) and the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) are launching the Restoration Stewards program to support and highlight the work of five young restoration practitioners and their teams, who will be dubbed ‘Restoration Stewards’. The year-long program will provide funding, mentorship, and training to deepen the impact of five youth-led restoration projects.
Over the year, the Restoration Stewards and their teams will be supported to further develop their project and will become ambassadors at both global and local levels. Globally, the Restoration Stewards will share their journey in a series of vlogs and blogs documenting their stories of inspiration and challenges. Locally, they will spark a restoration movement, creating pathways to connect, share, learn, and act for more sustainable landscapes.
