Living Soils Symposium/Symposium Sols Vivants
We are proud to be a part of the Living Soils Symposium, held online from February 22-26 by Regeneration Canada. This year’s Symposium will explore how healthy soil can influence water cycles. Join hundreds of change makers from across Canada and around the world for one week of solution-focused and action-oriented discussions.
Water cycles regulate our planet’s temperature. However, disruptions caused by deforestation, agriculture, fossil fuel extraction, and urbanization have amplified global warming and led us to face a water scarcity crisis.
The good news is that we can influence water cycles through the soil. Just as healthy soil has the potential to draw down carbon, it can also soak up, store and filter water, and help to restore water cycles.
It is essential to learn from and follow the lead of BIPOC land stewards if we want to regenerate soil, restore water cycles and biodiversity, and help to shape a healthy and just food system. This event therefore strives to give space for these voices and viewpoints that have often been overlooked or underrepresented in regenerative agriculture.
Come learn and exchange with leaders of the regenerative movement Takota Coen (Coen Farm), Walter Jehne (Climate Scientist and Microbiologist), Precious Phiri (Regeneration International), Michael Blackstock (Independent Indigenous Scholar), Odette Ménard (MAPAQ), Didi Pershouse (Center for Sustainable Medicine) and many more.
