Welcome from the Chair

In order to commemorate World Wetlands Day 2023 (https://www.un.org/en/observances/world-wetlands-day), MDPI is launching a special webinar to encourage researchers to join together, take action, and raise awareness as to how the exchange of findings facilitates efforts to restore degraded wetlands.

We aim to encourage connection and collaboration among education researchers and the international open access community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling wetlands restoration requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across different boundaries.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the MDPI World Wetlands Day Webinar 2023. Please find below an up-to-date outline of presenters.
