• Restoration-based education involves learners in ecological restoration with an intentional educational purpose.
• Urban restoration-based education can enhance personal and community well-being while improving ecosystem services in degraded environments.
• Restoration-based education can benefit from consciously forming partner ships, integrating local values alongside socioeconomic and ecological considerations, and being sensitive to issues of power and diverse cultures.
