“It’s possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems.” Environmental film maker John D. Liu documents large-scale ecosystem restoration projects in China, Africa, South America and the Middle East, highlighting the enormous benefits to people and planet of undertaking these efforts globally.

In only 10 years, the Chinese converted an area almost the size of Belgium from fallow land to a lush, productive ecosystem that produces food.  In a changing climate and with 1 billion added to the world population every 12 years, humans will have to undertake more projects like this to avoid a widespread Malthusian crisis.

It’s the story of healing landscapes at scale, and, with it, restoring life, livelihoods, security and a future.
