The IUCN CEM Ecosystem Restoration Thematic Group is convening a monthly webinar series, "Ecosystem Restoration: Global Initiatives in Science and Practice" to provide a forum for IUCN and CEM members to gain insight and knowledge about ecological restoration and to provide opportunities for networking and direct engagement.

Webinars will be held the 3rd Friday of each month from 12 to 1 pm Eastern EST using the platform “Zoom”. Quarterly the webinar will be held jointly with an ongoing “Pulse-of-the-Planet” series conducted by NatureServe, GEO BON and EcoHealth Alliance networks initiative. The Webinars are 40-minutes long and related to one of four themes below:

  • Global initiatives in ecological restoration;

  • Syntheses of accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities in ecological restoration within specific regions of the globe;

  • Technical guidance on prioritization, implementation, and monitoring of restoration activities, and

  • Identification of critical gaps and brainstorm of potential new initiatives and projects.
