The 22 April marks the third Mother Earth Day celebrated within the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Ecosystems support all life on Earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier the planet – and its people. Restoring our damaged ecosystems will help to end poverty, combat climate change and prevent mass extinction. But we will only succeed if everyone plays a part.

Education can play a huge part in raising awareness, skilling people and moving towards restorative steps for both people and the planet. We highlight UKFIET blogs here which show this through outlining examples and sharing lessons learned.
