Global Grassroots Dialogues on Ecosystem Restoration

Recognizing the crucial role of community engagement in ecosystem restoration, the Center for Earth Ethics and the United Religions Initiative are collaborating on a series of grassroots dialogues in communities around the world most affected by the impacts of climate change and environmental devastation. This pioneering initiative not only will address the implementation gap in restoration efforts but also will facilitate community engagement and participation in the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. By bridging the divide between community needs and available support, this initiative seeks to accelerate restoration efforts and amplify their impact on a global scale. CEE and URI will consolidate outcomes and insights from these dialogues into a comprehensive report in conjunction with the UN’s upcoming CBD (Convention on Biological Diversity) COP-16 conference, scheduled for this fall. 

All are invited to participate in this process. Whether you’re already engaged in a restoration process, or are just getting started, we encourage you to organize a dialogue circle. You can find all the materials to get you started below.
