Network in Land Rehabilitation Training

A Network for Education, Training and Transfer is in preparation as a follow-up of the project. The core mission of this network will be to contribute to raise awareness on the correct use of the land by society at large, and also to establish a forum for educators, researchers, technician and decision-makers. The end-point of the Network in Land Rehabilitation Training is to improve training capacities on Land Degradation and Rehabilitation in order to contribute to a sustainable environment management and to fulfill the demands of an emerging labour market with important implication for rural development (multiplicative effect on green economy).

The network will be hosted by hosted by The Society for Ecological Restoration and will be working in coordination with national and international associations (scientific, companies, NGO’s…).

b) Promote the production of training materials and resources
c) Organize workshops and training courses at regular SER meetings or other events
d) Promote collaborative projects in international programs (including ITN, Erasmus + and COST actions).
      e) Reinforce and enlarge networking effort and synergies with supporting institutions linked through SER or others

This NETWORK IS OPEN to involve motivated participants willing to develop the interface between the fields of Education and Ecological Restoration. If you are interested to participate or simply to get more information, let us know by sending an email to
