These are crucial times for ecological restoration in Europe and globally. Ecological restoration is essential to combat climate change, protect biodiversity and reverse desertification, and thus contribute to human wellbeing. Under the UN Decade of Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) and the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, we can reverse the global environmental crisis, and give Anthropocene a chance. Yet, to obtain all the benefits that ecological restoration can provide and ensure a fair distribution of wealth, we must promote its practice and strive to increase the quality of restoration programs. Bridges between science, practice and policy must be built, based on scientific excellence, to better understand socio-ecological systems and their management.

For one week, we will gather in Alicante to assess recent advances in the theory and practice of ecological restoration and discuss future priorities. We invite you to take full advantage of the many events that will be organized under the umbrella of SERE 2022 and contribute to build the European leadership in ecological restoration.
