Many of our 2020 camp experiences have been postponed due to the Covid-19 virus. We look forward to continue the gatherings when it is safe to do so. Please check our website or subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates. We commend the efforts by so many of us to limit the spread of the virus and send deep thanks to the healthcare workers across the globe taking care of those most affected. We see our work of bringing balance back to ecosystems as more important than ever. Our team is busy building our organizational capacity during this time so that we can share the message of regenerative land management even further. We are grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you at camp in the future.
Ecosystem Restoration Camps Foundation is a Dutch non-profit foundation with hundreds of members from over 30 countries around the world, and we continue to grow. In 2017 we established Camp Altiplano, the first Ecosystem Restoration Camp in Spain, and now have a camp on every continent. Our aim is to open 100 camps by 2030.
Our structure enables us to work with an executive Board of Directors, a volunteer and financially responsible Supervisory Board and a strategic Advisory Council. We regularly work with our members in the development of the foundation to incorporate their thoughts and ideas into our strategy moving forward.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
