Biodiversity loss is one of the major global threats to soils in many parts of the world.

On December 12 during COP15, Équiterre invites you to a conference in English by geologist David R. Montgomery and biologist Anne Biklé. Their most recent book, "What Your Food Ate: How to Heal Our Land and Reclaim Our Health", explores the influence of agricultural practices on soil biodiversity by integrating ancient wisdom and modern science to reveal how agricultural practices directly influence human and environmental health. This conference will be followed by a panel discussion held in French.

To benefit from the translation service, please bring your cell phone and headphones.
