S3 - EPISODE 5:
MEET THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION
We sometimes forget that the most sophisticated carbon sequestration infrastructures in the world are thousands of years old! Reforestation may reduce fossil fuel emissions, but replanting monocultures won’t solve the problem. Our ecosystems are ancient, complex and not easily replaced. What are some of the oldest and newest techniques around for protecting and regenerating our planet’s biodiversity?
Mary, Maeve & Thimali talk to Mina Susana Setra in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Jane Zelikova in Colorado, USA, in this week’s episode. We learn what it takes to preserve indigenous jurisdiction over forests, and how to nurture our soils back to good health.
Executive producers: Jody Allen, Ruth Johnston, Matt Milios as well as Jess Search & Beadie Finzi.
