About the event

Although agriculture accounts for 25% of global CO2 emissions, did you know it also represents one of the world's greatest assets in tackling the climate crisis? Soil is a rich ecosystem that plays an essential role in sustaining life on Earth. However, poor agricultural practices from the last decades have led to severe soil degradation, putting food security and the achievement of climate goals at risk. Nevertheless, the trend can be reversed. Regenerative agriculture absorbs carbon from the atmosphere into the soil, making it more resistant to climatic shocks such as floods and droughts. As its name suggests, its main aim is to 'regenerate' soil health, and is based on the principle that farmers can produce our food while restoring the ecological balance of our soils.
