The explorer.land is an interactive web-based project presentation and communication platform that supports the sharing of landscape restoration experiences. Alexander will make the case based on a real project, highlighting how visualization and storytelling can help projects create attention, engagement and collaboration with a broad group of stakeholders like governments, funding organizations, NGOs and the public. He will introduce the GLF audience to the new OpenForests map-based communication platform, that enables landscape projects to transparently communicate their progress, in order to connect with the landscape restoration community on a global level. In line with GLF’s mission, OpenForests aims to become a host that promotes and unites global landscape projects in one open, interactive and searchable web platform.
