RESTOR: BREAKING INTO RESTORATION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
Global Restoration now has an online meeting point. With all of the environmental problems in the world, there are solutions to them as well.
Nature is being lost on large scale — 75% of natural land has been severely damaged by human activity Restoring ecosystems around the world has the potential to draw down about 30% of accumulated global carbon emissions and is key to limiting the worst effects of climate change. But where do we start and how?
Here is how Restor-Google technology helps unlock ecological insights. Restor helps anyone be a part of ecological restoration!
Restor is a map-based, open-source platform created so that people can plan, manage and monitor restoration projects.
The mission is to support and accelerate the restoration of the earth’s ecosystems for biodiversity, climate, and people. We are doing this by bringing together every actor involved in nature restoration on a single digital platform. Known as the “Google Map for restoration”- where anyone, anywhere will be able to see and engage with the global restoration movement, watch how landscapes change over time and learn about the ecology of any terrestrial location. And the platform is completely FREE!
At the moment, 121,000 restoration sites are registered on Restor and still counting.
