Mauricio Nuñez Oporto
Mauricio Nuñez Oporto is deeply motivated by the opportunity to improve our collective stewardship of socio-ecological systems. He consistently pursues and fully engages in responsible, pragmatic, and incremental ways to convene and explore potential to complex questions based on regenerative practice and living systems thinking. A Young Peruvian Naturalist who has focused his life on working for the health of our landscapes and the communities that steward those places. Mauricio is an ecological restoration specialist. He is the founder and Director of Regeneracion Ecosistemas Peru, a coalition catalyzing initiatives and capital for landscape restoration and community wellbeing. He has deep experience from 20+ diverse and complex land management and restoration projects globally. Mauricio is an associate researcher at IPROGA, Institute for Social Water Management; Blue Marble Evaluation – Transformation Systems Mapping & Analysis Fellow and also a member at the Global Regeneration CoLab and; a convener at the Regenerative Communities Network. His burning question is how to develop advanced landscape development hypotheses that ignite regenerative development at the bioregional scale? With this in mind, he is designing landscape investment fund that will ensure that restoration is financially attractive while supporting rural livelihoods and wellbeing. When he is not restoring ecosystems or catalyzing landscape initiatives, he is surfing the swells that hit the Peruvian coast. He also loves camping and hiking the wonderful landscapes in his backyard, the Vilcanota Mountain Range can show. He farms and engages phenomenologically with the bounties of the natural world to provide fresh produce for himself, friends, and colleagues.
