Restoring land to ecological health and vitality.
Ecosystem Restoration Camps is a global grassroots movement of everyday people, coming together to restore our degraded ecosystems. Their mission is to work together to restore ecological functionality, to build Research, Training and Innovation Centres for Ecological Restoration, to engage people in inquiry into ecological restoration, and train people in how to restore degraded lands in perpetuity.
Their camps will help to create action towards sustainable climate change practices by teaching large numbers of people how to restore degraded land, whilst giving them the opportunity to work with local farmers who need support in transitioning to regenerative agriculture. At the camps, people acquire the knowledge and information they need in order to put theory into practice. This gives farmers who are struggling financially the ability to try regenerative techniques, thanks to the voluntary manual labour, and gives people valuable experience in landscape restoration. Ecosystem Restoration Camps has the potential to give millions of people around the world the chance to reconnect with the natural world, causing ripple effects as they bring this knowledge and connection back into towns and cities across the globe.

With the climate crisis predicted to make many parts of the planet uninhabitable, Camp Paradise will transform our understanding of how to deliver ecosystem restoration in locations affected by climate change, including land damaged by wildfires.
