"We are the soil"
27-05-2014
Vandana Shiva, the international ambassador of the Save Our Soils campaign, has published an insightful article about the importance of soil and the scope of the Save Our Soils campaign, in The Asian Age magazine.

In the article Shiva summarizes the whole idea behind the Save Our Soils campaign in the comprehensive and thought-provoking way that only she can. You can read the article here. Some quotes:

  • "What we do to the soil, we do to ourselves."
  • "Soil, not oil, holds the future for humanity."
  • "Soil is being lost at 10 to 40 times the rate at which it can be replenished naturally. This implies 30 per cent less food over the next 20-50 years."
  • "Land is not a commodity. Creating, conserving, rejuvenating fertile and living soil is the most important objective of civilisation. It is a regenerative output."
