In December, Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, tweeted that soil was “a
rising star” at the Paris climate talks. Join us at this JP Forum to
explore the reasons for that hopeful statement. We’ll consider the promise
of soil restoration to capture carbon while providing benefits for food
production and ecosystems. We will also discuss the opportunity to
strengthen the climate movement by including nature as an ally and
enlisting the agricultural sector. Please join us to find out how soil
restoration can help mitigate climate change!

Speakers:

Seth Itzkan is co-founder of Soil4Climate.
Quinton Zondervan is president of the Climate Action Business Association.
Kannan Thiruvengadam runs a community farm in East Boston using
permaculture principles.
A representative from the French consulate, who will speak the French
commitment to recapture carbon through soil sequestration.
