Webinars on using the Restor platform for your restoration project
You need to get the word out on your restoration project to connect with collaborators, funders, and geo-relevant information. The Restor platform can help you with all three functions. By listing their restoration projects on the platform, ISTF members will gain visibility to both potential collaborators and funders. They will be able to explore site-specific ecological data for planning and monitoring their projects. Restor, the International Society of Tropical Foresters, and Terraformation are teaming up to offer a training webinar on how to load your restoration project on the Restor platform.
There will be four different occasions to maximize accessibility for different regions. The same content will be presented at each session. Find your time zone with this tool.
