Heal the biosphere — Oct 16 at Kitchener Public Library

Partnering with Nature to heal the biosphere
Tues Oct. 16, 6:30 – 9 pm

Earth is in crisis, but there is much we can and should do. How can we work with nature to heal the wounds we’ve inflicted?

A handful of leading-edge thinkers will be presenting their solutions at a public forum. All speakers have been involved in research and practices that contribute to the reversal of greenhouse gas emissions through natural agricultural approaches and tree-planting to restore land, and from environmental activists who see the need to encourage any and all methods to draw down existing carbon that will complement the technological methods of preventing future emissions.

This event will honour Michael Purves-Smith, who initiated the project, but did not live to see it take place. Michael’s goal was to raise awareness in Waterloo Region of the urgency for a holistic solution to the crisis of the biosphere.

FREE.

DATE AND TIME
Tue, 16 October 2018
6:30 PM – 9:00 PM EDT

LOCATION
Kitchener Public Library Auditorium
85 Queen Street North
