The Curious Person's Guide to Earth Repair: Regenerating Soil and Water Landscapes

Next Event: Thu, Dec 12, 2019, 06:30pm08:00pm

Over the past year, the public has grown increasingly aware of the ways we have inadvertently harmed the biodiversity and ecosystems upon which life depends. The United Nations having declared 2021-2030 the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration presents the opportunity for a global focus on regenerating natural systems. 

Journalist/author Judith D. Schwartz has traveled widely to find people who are successfully restoring healthy soil and water ecosystems. She will talk with Nicola Williams about her books Cows Save the Planet and Water in Plain Sight, and a forthcoming book about the global ecosystem restoration movement.  

Presented as part of Horizons: Exploring Breakthroughs in Science & Technology and Their Impact on Society, a lecture series of the STEAM Initiative at the Cambridge Public Library.
