The Mission of the Save Soil Campaign
As already mentioned above, Save Soil Campaign is a global movement that aims to instill and invoke a sense of consciousness in people about soil and planet Earth in all. Moreover, one of the main objectives of the campaign is to showcase to the governments across the world that the citizens want their policies to revitalize ecology and soil.
Isha Outreach will partner with the Save Soil Movement to carefully monitor, and facilitate, its execution in India. To add to this, thousands of celebrities and popular personalities including, politicians, policy experts, scientists, etc are coming together with the common and ultimate goal to restore soil health, and rekindle our strong relationship with Mother Earth.
The Journey So Far
Well, the Save Soil campaign aims to garner support from around 3.5 billion people, and for this reason, Sadhguru will be traveling for over 30,000 kilometers across 24 different nations on a lone motorcycle.
The journey will kickstart in London, and it will end in the Cauvery basin in Southern India, where the Cauvery Calling Project, started by Sadhguru himself, has enabled around 1,25,000 farmers to plant 62 million trees to revive the soil, and also replenish the depleting waters of river Cauvery.
The Approach Adopted by Isha Outreach
Under the Save Soil campaign, Isha Outreach is planning to encourage people to participate in the movement in large numbers, so that they can draw the attention of the world to the current situation and why it is a matter of concern. Therefore, this will encourage the governments and the leading policymakers to adopt policies and allocate a budget for better implementation of ecological solutions.
Collaboration With UNCCD
The foundation stone for UNCCD was laid down in 1994, and it is known as the United National Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). It is an organization that is responsible for legally binding all the international agreements thereby linking environment and development to sustainable land management. UNCCD is a key partner who is associated with the Save Soil Campaign movement. The organization is playing an important role by collaborating on a range of different aspects including, scientific knowledge, communication, and outreach.
