We believe in the potential of the individual to bring positive change TO THE WORLD.
Empathy and knowledge build the foundations to restore this unique planet. Through the medium of film and photography, we want to make visible the most pressing problems of our time: land degradation, climate change, biodiversity loss and poverty.
By combining sound science and modern communication media, we encourage collective action that will help restore PlANET EARTH.
We need to reinvent our lives and restore A NEW equilibrium that enables all liFE to flourish.
Making change visible and seeing the passage of time with one’s own eyes, this is the unique potential of repeat photography. By juxtaposing the past with the present, we got to witness how landscapes change. We can see the radical impact of humans on the planet, as well as our ability to reverse degradation and bring landscapes back to life. SEE-international has specialized in the art of repeat photography working across the globe on a broad set of cultural and environmental contexts.

With a special focus on the upcoming United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), the Society for Environmental Education International remains dedicated to research and communicate the potential of ecosystem restoration.
Restoration science is needed to rejuvenate the fundamental ecological support systems of our planet. No other discipline than restoration ecology addresses the dysfunction of our planet in more holistic way.
This relatively new science does not stop at detecting dysfunction but engages actively in finding solutions on how to transition to more functional states. Making it clear that destruction and degradation at any scale can be reversed by cross-disciplinary approaches that guide holistic restoration strategies.
Only by including all stakeholders, by employing rigorous science and by engaging the greater public will landscape restoration be able to rebuild the resilient ecological systems that all life depends upon. Sound ecosystem restoration strategies will therefore have to reflect ecosystem complexity as well as socio-cultural realities.
SEE-International collaborates with leading scientific institutions around the globe to advance our scientific understanding of the earth’s systems and to communicate the lessons learned, to name a few: United Nations University, Development Geography University Bonn (Germany), German Development Institute (Germany), Chinese Academy of Science (PRC) or the School for Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria (Canada).
