Ecosystem restoration is gaining momentum in science and policy as a process that can tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and other societal challenges. The human and social dimensions of restoration projects, however, deserve more attention and emphasis.
The Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) organises the workshop “Making people part of ecosystem restoration in Europe” that will be held in Bonn, Germany and online on 17-19 October 2023. The workshop will bring together European experts from science, policy and practice to discuss how inclusive, rights-based design and planning processes, and participatory, multistakeholder implementation can be strengthened to ensure the engagement of local communities and other stakeholders in nature restoration and increase acceptance, social licence, ownership and sustainability of the interventions in the long-term.
