Reimagine, Recreate & Restore The Ecosystem Grant
As human activities continue to exploit and destroy our planet’s ecosystems, the loss of forests and peatlands is greatly robbing the earth of carbon sinks, which help keep the earth’s temperature normal. The call to Reimagine, Recreate and Restore the world’s ecosystem in this year’s World Environment Day (WED2021,) by the United Nation, also re-echoes the Sustainable Development Goals. At ShareYourself, our commitment to helping the world achieve these Global Goals through Ecosystem Restoration is the major goal of this grant. ShareYourself will be funding any project that Reimagines, Recreates and Restores the Ecosystem of a local community that has been affected by human activities or Climate change, through this $3,000 grant, for one winner only.
