Working group 3: Ecological Restoration Through Tree Planting in the Global South: A Means of Achieving Climate Justice or Greening Extractivism? Ecological restoration is an important emerging topic in debates on the mitigation and governance of climate and ecological crises. This panel dialogue will examine the multiple meanings associated with ecological restoration, including the socio-political dimensions, and interlinkages to tree planting activities in the global South.

In this lecture, organized by Maria Ehrnström-Fuentes for Hanken School of Economics, we heard from Tony Rinaudo and Judith Schwartz. These guest lecturers speak about the possibilities of widespread restoration of ecosystems with the help of trees and other techniques that regenerate soils, as well as carbon and water cycles.
