Testimonial COmON Foundation

“The COmON Foundation is one of the founders of Commonland and we have committed to partner with Commonland for the long-term.

In my role as Executive Director at the COmON Foundation, I have known Commonland since their start in 2013 and appreciate their honest and infectious passion for the field of landscape restoration.

A highlight of our partnership in 2019 was coming together twice with      a select group of partners and funders to discuss our common ground and ways to strengthen each other. Commonland  connects  people and is able to build bridges: in the field and also in the boardroom.

Although none of us has ever been in space, Commonland surrounds itself with those who suffer from theOverview Effect: from space, national boundaries vanish, the conflicts that divide people become less important, and the need to create a planetary society with the united will to protect and restore this “pale blue dot” becomes both obvious and imperative. From this thorough belief Commonland operates as a true professional and servant leader in the market of landscape restoration.

At the COmON Foundation, we are dedicated to the regeneration and re-greening of degraded areas worldwide, empowering communities, optimizing land use and nurturing nature, based on innovative approaches. In Commonland we’ve found a long-term partner because the 4 Returns approach for large-scale holistic landscape restoration based on sustainable business cases, achieves exactly this.”
