In the research phase of this project the core team consists of Hannah Steenbergen (UK), Lyra Skusa (DE), Nakyta Grimm (CA) and Pieter Ploeg (NL). We are graduates from the International Youth Initiative Program (YIP) and we have worked there for several years. We also co-founded and coordinated the Summer of Soil, and various other educational projects like Mission U, summer courses, leadership trainings, volunteer programs, learning journeys and conferences. We are currently building our capacity to run this project and a network of people to help us in this ambitious restoration effort. Our team is not fixed, and various others have been involved in co-designing or have shown interest in joining the project. Once we gain traction and momentum we are ready to expand.
