This is where your 4 Returns journey starts. In this section, you’ll learn more about the foundation of this guidebook: the 4 Returns framework. In the chapter, the 4 Returns framework, we explore the need for holistic landscape restoration and the solution that the 4 Returns framework brings. Following this, we deep-dive into the themes that make up Returns in the chapter, Unpacking the 4 Returns. We share stories that show the diverse ways in which landscape activities can create real impact. Finally, the chapter, How to get started, offers inspiration for your first steps. Stories here reveal that getting started can differ widely in different contexts. We also explore a range of mindsets that fit well with a 4 Returns approach – for you to take on the rest of your journey.
