More information



Under current EU legislation and international agreements there is an increasing obligation to protect and restore ecosystems. While restoration is scale up, there is increasing emphasis on using natural processes to restore damaged ecosystems like in rewilding. Ecosystem restoration also emphasizes increasingly human welbeing and a portfolio of ecosystem services that are to be enhanced. Furthermore, there is increasingly room for private actors in restoration and conservation processes. The proposed course would give, using concrete examples from North Karelia an overview of natural, economic, legal and social frameworks for ecosystem restoration. The work is done in collaboration with the Eco2adapt and Microeco projects.
