Decolonizing restoration: laying solid foundations for #GenerationRestoration

As we enter a decade dedicated to ecosystem restoration, it is crucial to center the knowledge, interests and needs of the people that are stewarding the world’s remaining biodiversity: Indigenous peoples and local communities. During this special Youth Daily Show, Adjany Costa, a young marine biologist and ethno-conservationist from Angola, who also served as the youngest Minister of Culture, Tourism and Environment in Angola’s history, will share her own experience with community-led conservation as well as her perspective on setting robust foundations for a restoration movement that includes traditional ecological knowledge and scientific knowledge.
