Description

Aland Foundation was born with the vision of creating a resilient territory in the face of climate change in the Iberian Peninsula. For this purpose, it aims to connect initiatives that are working on restoration projects in Spain 🇪🇸 and Portugal 🇵🇹 to exchange knowledge , to have more strength and influence on public policies ️ and to be a source of inspiration for others.

The restoration of degraded territories must be addressed as a systemic change to have a real and lasting impact over time, reversing the current situation of biodiversity loss , desertification ️, lack of opportunities for young people , lack of pride for rural territories ️.

The model 4 returns – 3 zones -20 years, created by the Commonland Foundation, can be the tool ️ to develop these restoration projects.
1️⃣ Return of Natural Capital
2️⃣ Returns on Social Capital
3️⃣ Return on Financial Capital
4️⃣ Inspiration Return
3 Zones: Natural – Agricultural – Economic

This 4R model is tested in the project that the AlVelAl Association is developing in the Southeast Steppe of the peninsula . A territory of 1 million hectares in which a movement of people who restore soil, water, biodiversity and community has been created.
There are many initiatives restoring territories , promoting agriculture that regenerates soil , managing ecosystems to be a source of biodiversity and carbon sinks, creating companies that add value to products coming from restoration , but it is time to unite to have greater strength and impact to scale.

LET’S START WEAVING NETWORKS ️TO TURN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA INTO THE FIRST 4RETURNS TERRITORY IN THE WORLD .

2158 members are now active on 4returns.earth, connecting, sharing their field experiences, and creating new opportunities and initiatives together.
