Description

Resilience, Urgency, Collective Action

Regenerating soil health is the most overlooked and promising solution to climate change. Who would have thought that the food we eat could help restore the climate and regenerate our ecosystems?

To achieve ecological restoration on a large scale and mitigate climate change, what we need is a systemic change involving all of us: citizens, farmers, land managers, researchers, businesses, non-profit organizations and public decision-makers. What role can you play for soil regeneration?

In light of the present circumstances, we decided to produce our event online in order to offer quality content to the community as well as meeting opportunities in these times of social distancing.

Come learn, exchange and meet other people who care about the health of the soil and our environment. Take advantage of virtual panels, interactive online workshops, campfire conversations, networking opportunities and more!
