Integrated landscape management and large-scale landscape restoration should be in every company’s business strategy because in order to reach the Sustainable Development Goal on Land Degradation Neutrality (SDG Number 15.3) scaling up and acceleration of business-driven landscape restoration is urgently needed. This requires business professionals with a vision, the right knowledge and skills. This MOOC aims to train the next generation of business professionals and developers to acknowledge business’ interdependency with healthy landscapes and understand the value of ecosystem resources. “Historically, we have found countless ways to justify our continued exploitation of the environment: discovery, tradition, Manifest Destiny, even Chinese hoax. But we’re all out of excuses now. Each passing day swells the data on greenhouse gases and extreme weather, shrinking reservoirs and rising sea levels, and diminishing biodiversity. Our resources are finite, the window for change if not firmly shut, is certainly closing, and all life must adapt or be doomed.” Téa Obreht, The New Yorker, Dec. 19&26, 2016, p. 106. It is a frightening prospect indeed – that all life on Earth must either adapt or be doomed. This course is about landscape degradation – a global and wicked problem that is contributing to the dooming prospect of depletion of Earth’s finite resources. But this course is also about the solutions to this problem – business driven landscape restoration. So rather than leaving you powerless with the prospect Obreht puts fowards above, it is our hope that you learn how you can be part of the solution to making sure that Planet Earth still provides a safe and habitable home for future generations. We must act big and we must act now. With this course we want to pass on valuable knowledge and teach you useful skills that you can apply in your professional life that will enable you to tackle the issue of landscape degradation and restoration. The issue is urgent, so let’s dive right into it. This MOOC is developed by the ENABLE partnership, which is co-funded by the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission and involves a diverse, international group of organizations including Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, Commonland, United Nations University Land Restoration Training Programme, the Spanish National Research Council and Estoril Global Conferences.

可持续景观恢复的商业方法:整合景观管理和大规模景观恢复应纳入每家公司的业务战略,因为为了实现土地退化中性的可持续发展目标(SDG号15.3),扩大并加速业务驱动迫切需要景观恢复。 这要求业务专业人员具有远见,正确的知识和技能。该MOOC旨在培训下一代业务专业人员和开发人员,以确认业务与健康景观之间的相互依赖性,并了解生态系统资源的价值。 “从历史上看,我们找到了无数种方法来证明我们对环境的持续开发是合理的:发现,传统,清单命运,甚至中国骗局。但是现在我们都没有借口了。日新月异的数据增加了有关温室气体和极端天气,水库缩小和海平面上升以及生物多样性减少的数据。我们的资源是有限的,变革的窗口如果没有牢牢地关闭,肯定会关闭,所有生活都必须适应或注定要失败。” TéaObreht, 《纽约客》,2016年12月19日至26日,第1页。 106。 确实,这是一个令人恐惧的前景-地球上的所有生命都必须适应或注定要失败。这门课程的主题是景观退化,这是一个全球性的,严重的问题,正在加剧地球有限资源枯竭的前景。但是,本课程还涉及解决此问题的方法-业务驱动的景观恢复。 因此,我们希望让您了解如何成为解决方案的一部分,以确保Planet Earth仍然为子孙后代提供一个安全且宜居的住所,而不是让您无所不能。 我们必须大举行动,现在就必须行动。 通过本课程,我们希望传递有价值的知识,并教给您在您的职业生涯中可以应用的有用技能,这将使您能够解决景观退化和恢复的问题。 这个问题很紧急,所以让我们深入研究它。 此MOOC由ENABLE伙伴关系开发,该伙伴关系由欧盟委员会的ERASMUS +计划共同资助,涉及多个国际组织,包括鹿特丹管理学院,伊拉斯姆斯大学,普兰兰德,联合国大学土地恢复培训计划,西班牙国家研究委员会和Estoril全球会议。

课程大纲

This course is developed by ENABLE – which stands for European Network for Advancement of Business and Landscape Education. The objective of this course is to educate you about the role of business in landscape management and restoration and, vice versa, about the role of healthy landscapes for sustainable businesses. To accelerate integrated landscape management and large-scale business driven landscape restoration we need passionate professionals and practitioners. We will challenge you to become a professional who is not afraid to work as a game-changer in transformative collaboration aiming at landscape management and restoration. In this first video Simon Moolenaar from Commonland will give you an overview of the content and skills you can expect to learn about in each week, and what you can aim to take away at the end of the course. Simon will introduce you to one of the principal concepts of this course; landscape degradation and the scale of this problem globally. He will then show you the many dimensions there are to the relation between landscapes and businesses. Specifically, he will illustrate how there is both an economic cause for landscape degradation but also an economic logic to the solution – business-driven landscape restoration. You will be introduced to the Land Degradation Neutrality target which is one of seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. Simon will explain how the SDGs can be used to raise awareness and mobilise the private and public sector for action. Another tool for landscape restoration you will learn about is the 4 returns framework developed by Commonland. This framework is about large-scale landscape restoration with 4 returns on investment: return of inspiration, return of natural capital, return of social capital and return of financial capital. We will then return to this framework and explore it in greater depth in the fourth week of the course. Let's get started!
