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 of their projects. Restor, the International Society of Tropical Foresters, and Terraformation are teaming up to offer a training webinar (same content) on 4 occasions for different regions on how to load your restoration project on the Restor platform.
