Transformational climate action through small scale sustainable agriculture
Climate change is a global reality that must be addressed quickly using techniques that provide transformational change. As we all wrestle with the implications and realities that climate change introduces, governments struggle with broad stroke approaches that will require years to negotiate and implement. However at the grassroots level, real world solutions are taking hold and demonstrating the true potential of innovation, particularly in the realm of agriculture.
Agricultural activity is estimated to be responsible for as much as one third of global warming and climate change. From conventional tillage, to fertilizer use and livestock production, human farming activities are taking a massive toll on the environment. As a major contributor to the problem of climate change, farming represents an important avenue for solutions, even at the smallest scale. Harvest the Future will feature ground-breaking implementations of aquaponics systems that are changing lives and the environment around the world. From Gaza to Jamaica, these small-scale food production projects demonstrate sustainable practices in real-world situations that are transforming communities and creating opportunities for people and the planet. Join us for this unique opportunity to discuss where we are now and where these technologies can take us in the future.
Scheduled presentations and events dealing with practical aquaponic innovations include:
