MEDIA & EVENTS OF INTEREST
Even during the extreme heat and horrific bushfires of 2020 in Australia, this project provided a refuge of cooler temperatures, humidity, and productivity. What’s so remarkable about this project is that it wasn’t previously a rainforest. This rainforest was by choice, carefully co-created by humans. This project, led by Walter Jehne, shows how humans can be a positive force in increasing planetary health and the stability of our climate.

KISS THE GROUND
The solution is right under our feet
Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an award winning film revealing that by regenerating the world’s soils we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.
