Edition 2020

The 2020 Living Soils Symposium

took place virtually from April 27 to May 8, 2020.

Sessions were focused on Urgency, Resilience and Collective Action as the event’s three pillars.

In light of all the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, Regeneration Canada was determined more than ever to bring the regenerative community together to facilitate discussions about the best ways to regenerate our ecosystems and become more resilient.

To ensure the safety of the community, the decision was made to cancel the in-person Symposium scheduled in March 2020. It was transformed into a virtual experience over a period of 2 weeks, which gathered 800 people.
