Rewilding is a new, (pro)active approach to biodiversity conservation. Restoring ecosystems is key to our public health and mental well-being, and vital in the fight against climate change and mass extinction. The goal of this session is to discuss and promote sound models of rewilding, in order to reach and maintain a favourable level of health for habitats and species. Can we bring back natural processes while promoting socio-economic development and supporting rural communities? In this session, we share experiences with rewilding projects, and look at possible funding and income-generating mechanisms that contribute to healthy, life-supporting landscapes and rural development.
