Description

Our ambition is inspire as many people as possible to join the global movement and engage in holistic and business-driven landscape restoration using the 4 Returns framework, contributing to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.

Landscape development and support

Commonland brings a holistic approach to landscape restoration. Our international team of specialists offers our partners a wide range of support tools, advice, guidance and global network to maximize the 4 Returns framework at scale. Under this field of work are a set of key interventions:

  • Identifying landscape initiatives
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Mapping: designing actions on the ground within three zones
  • Business development
  • Finance and fundraising

Knowledge and innovation platform

We are currently prototyping this online community platform called 4returns.earth. This online space caters to a growing global community of practitioners and other professionals involved in large-scale landscape restoration projects using our holistic 4 Returns framework. The 4 Returns platform connects you to a like-minded global community that shares ideas, tools, publications, events and stories. The platform also currently offers two Massive Open Online Courses via Coursera. Join the community and let us know what you think.
