Ecosystem Restoration Camps, part of John D. Liu's "Great Work of Our Time," are a methodology to regenerate degraded lands on a planetary scale. Carry Kim speaks with John, Ecosystem Ambassador and Founder and Advisory Council Chair of the Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation. The camps movement serves as a model for restoring ecological function while addressing some of the most pressing issues of our time including: poverty, hunger, refugee crises, climate change and the need to create resilient communities. There are now 23 camps spanning six continents, and the movement continues to grow exponentially. John D. Liu is a filmmaker, environmental educator [https://knaw.academia.edu/JohnDLiu], and Founder and Advisory Council Chair of the Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation [https://ecosystemrestorationcamps.org/join-a-camp/]. He also serves as Ecosystem Ambassador of the Commonland Foundation [https://commonland.com/en]. As a filmmaker in 1995, the World Bank asked John to document the ecological restoration of the Loess Plateau in China. Since learning that it is possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems, John has devoted his life to understanding and communicating about the potential and responsibility to restore degraded landscapes on a planetary scale.
