YIL and GLF are calling young people to action, to design the new logo for Generation Restoration, a youth-led, youth-centred initiative that will run throughout the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030).
What is Generation Restoration?
Imagine young people cleaning up beaches in Brazil; planting trees on a mountain slope in Uganda; and helping bring back bees to urban cityscapes in the United States. Now imagine all of those people coming together. Imagine them all healing their landscapes, collaborating, exchanging knowledge and skills, and inspiring others to do the same. That’s what Generation Restoration is about.
What is the Decade on Ecosystem Restoration?
It’s a massive global call-to-action, which the United Nations has issued to mobilize political and financial support to restore the world’s degraded and deforested ecosystems. Over the course of the Decade, over two billion hectares — an area larger than the South American continent — stand to be restored, which would make a huge impact on our efforts to keep carbon emissions in check, and contribute to the well-being of an estimated 3.2 billion people across the globe.
The winner will receive 500 euros and the opportunity to showcase their design during the June Global Landscapes Forum Digital Summit, broadcast from Bonn, Germany, as well as the chance to work with the Generation Restoration team in the lead up to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
