Youth Eco Restorers for Climate

Youth Eco Restorers for Climate

Around the world, young people are organizing in a variety of ways to restore our ecosystems and heal planet Earth. Hear from three remarkable youth leaders who are doing incredible work to help protect and restore the Earth through ecosystem restoration, art, and regenerative agricultural advocacy.

Sergio Esteban Lozano-Báez is from Colombia. In 2011, he worked on the forest restoration plan for areas affected by alluvial gold mining in the Nechí river basin, Antioquia. Sergio has a PhD in Forest Resources at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and the results of his thesis appeared in many scientific articles. In 2019, he coordinated his first restoration project with the organization Selva – Research for Conservation in the Neotropics. This restoration project aims to restore 45 ha on the north of Tolima, Colombia, planting 25,000 native tree species to improve the habitat of endemic and endangered bird species. Through this project, he became a Mountain Restoration Steward for Global Landscapes Forum.

Ayushi Gaur is a college freshmen with a double major in Marine Biology and Dance at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC, and works on the Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council – a program of the Jane Goodall Institute. Through ConservACTION, a virtual space dedicated to highlighting the intersections of the creative arts and the environmental movement, she is able to combine two of her great passions (environmental conservation and the creative arts) and inspire others to do the same.

Carol Viana is an environmental engineer and climate activist. She is the co-founder of the Chloride Free Foundation, an international organization trying to reverse climate change by protecting soil biodiversity and promoting chloride-free and chemical-free agriculture. She is also a member of YOUNGO, the official Youth Constituency of the UNFCCC, where she discusses issues related to environmental advocacy and regenerative agriculture with global audiences.
