- Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin, Regenerative Agriculture Alliance
This event left me feeling hopeful that we will, at the end, have a movement at the scale needed to regenerate the ecosystems on which we depend.
- Finian Makepeace, Kiss the Ground
I recommend this conference to everyone. Without a doubt, one of the best I’ve presented at.
We need all this energy to put soil health at the heart of our society.
- Odette Ménard, Ministry of Agriculture of Québec
Water makes life on earth possible.
Water cycles regulate our planet’s temperature. Yet, 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 cycling 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.

Why This Matters
Rehydrating our landscapes by regenerating soil will cool the planet and have ripple effects on human health, climate resilience, social inequities and biodiversity restoration.
increase in soil organic matter can help soils hold up to 75,000 L more water per acre1.
Water vapour feedback roughly doubles the amount of warming caused by CO2 and other greenhouse gases2 and is responsible for95%
of the planet’s heat dynamics3.
Land degradation is largely contributing to mass migration:1.6 billion
people will be at risk of floods by 20504.
of the global population is affected by water scarcity5.
of productive land become barren every year due to desertification and drought, an area roughly the size of England6.
Since its beginnings, agriculture has caused the loss of133 Giga tons
of soil carbon which has largely been emitted to the atmosphere as CO2, therefore contributing to climate change.
