Volunteer with the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration

The challenges of today require problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. The United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration launched in 2021, and runs from 2021-2030, proclaimed by collective restoration action by over 70 countries. The declaration aims to halt the degradation of ecosystems and create a restorative mindset in our communities. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet and its people! This Decade supports ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. It can help to alleviate poverty, combat climate change, and curtail mass extinction. It will only succeed if everyone plays a part.
