Partnering with Nature to Heal the Biosphere @ Kitchener Public Library Theatre
Oct 16 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

[1]

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.
