The global movement for environmental justice and a livable climate has brought international attention to the value of soils as a sink for the carbon accumulated in the atmosphere due to irresponsible consumption of fossil fuels. Increasing soil organic matter is the only practical way to mitigate climate chaos. For several years, Soil Not Oil has worked with anti-fossil fuel activists and other stakeholders, helping them recognize that many factors contribute to harmful carbon emissions including soil depletion, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, industrial-agriculture, and any practices that threaten the health and function of soils. Additionally, leading scientists, farmers and soil advocates have defined soil carbon sequestration as a viable path to mitigate global warming. Many past attendees have been so inspired by the conference that they have shifted the focus of their work towards soils. Also as a direct result of the SNO conference, several environmental organizations implemented programs related to soils. The annual Soil Not Oil International Conference was inspired in the work of Dr. Vandana Shiva and her book Soil Not Oil, «Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Chaos», this event provides and unique bridge between the clean energy and the agro-ecological movements. We educate participants and provide them with the tools to become agents of change from any position, location or income.
