Human impact has “broken” some ecosystems on the planet and significantly compromised most others. Is it possible restoring ecological health to impacted areas could address the worst threat yet faced by human civilization: the climate crisis?

Vast amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide can be returned to soil through innovative land management practices. Benefits include greater agricultural productivity, improved nutrition, enhanced drought resilience, and the return of water to dried-up rivers and lakes.

This panel discussion, a free Cambridge Science Festival event, will focus on the latest science and field trials indicating that significant carbon drawdown is not only possible, it's essential.
