Sadhguru stimulates horticultural sector to take action towards a 'Conscious Planet'.
EatThis co-organizes meet up at Koppert on March 22
The renowned Indian Yogi and visionary Sadhguru meets with the Dutch horticultural sector on Tuesday morning March 22. Focus of this meeting lies on the Conscious Planet – Save Soil movement which Sadhguru launches this month and strives to inspire world leaders, visionaries, influencers and 3,5 billion people in 193 countries to take joint action on saving our soils.
Sadhguru participates in a panel discussion with EatThis contributors Meiny Prins of Priva and Rob Baan of Koppert Cress. The event takes place at the head office of Koppert, world market leader in the field of biological crop protection.
The visit to the Netherlands is part of Sadhguru’s 100 day journey that starts the day before in London. He will travel 30.000 km from London to South India on his motorbike. By way of this odyssey across the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East Sadhguru wants to mobilize support of citizens and governments to revive and regenerate the soil.
According to the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), more than 90% of the earth’s soil will be degraded by 2050, leading to global catastrophes such as food and water shortages, droughts and famines, climate change, mass migrations and extinction of species at an unprecedented pace.
The Save Soil campaign strives to inspire at least 3,5 billion people (60% of the voters all over the world) to support long term government policy to revive and regenerate soils. Sadhguru: ‘It doesn’t matter how much wealth, education and money we have, our children cannot enjoy their lives unless we restore our soils and water resources. Conscious Planet is the only way forward.’
The Save Soil movement is being supported by various global authorities and agencies like the UNCCD and the World Food Program. World leaders as the famous nature conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall and His Holiness the Dalai Lama support the movement as well as business leaders like Marc Benioff (Salesforce) and spiritual leaders and celebrities like Deepak Chopra, Victoria Azarenka, Rosario Dawson, Tony Robbins, Maluma, will.i.am and Sza.
