As a collective of educators and innovators EarthRestoration is attempting to model a funding mechanism for organized restorations of ecosystems (Large Scale and Anthropogenic) in Sri Lanka and Myanmar. This is strategically implemented an integrated context whereby communities who are capable to live in a traditional manner (RURALS) are supported to do so, building naturally adaptive resiliencies in order to survive the wake of modern development and its many restraints (URBANS).
This does not mean the RURALS are poor and underprivileged, but in fact can contribute immensely to existing national and international objectives such as increasing contributions to the atmosphere / mitigation of GHG’s / increasing natural productivity in SOIL / Increasing green canopy cover etc.
Agrarian societies with long histories possess the credibility of having sustained themselves successfully under the rigor of survival in a natural world. The concern for the future is that the model chosen for sustaining future global agrarian society is an energy and resource demanding production system. No investment is being put into developing traditional societies.
