Living Soil +Carbon Sequestration + Native Plants = soil security = water security.
Twenty prominent presenters over two days in dialogue with Summit attendees will share strategies for:
• Restoring urban soils
• Reducing drought
• Creating a more verdant and economically viable city, and
• Sequestering carbon in the soil biome to reverse climate change.
Here in the City of Angels is the beginning of the collaboration with the billions of angels in the soil biome beneath our feet to restore the soils of America’s urban environments.
The Summit host, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, located in Exposition Park, near downtown Los Angeles, seeks to inspire wonder, discovery and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds and empower the widest possible audience to enjoy, value and become stewards of the living Earth. The Museum believes that human beings are connected — to each other, to communities, to other species, and to the Earth.
As humans increasingly influence natural systems, it is critical that we understand these relationships. Therefore, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County has donated all facilities and resources during this Summit in order to spark the necessary dialogue around urban soil and water security.
