Panel Discussion on Save Soil

by Akanksha Pokhrel

On the occasion of World Environment Day on June 5, Isha Foundation and VFY talks organised a panel discussion on “Save Soil”. It is a global movement launched by Sadhguru, to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to aware and stand up for soil health. Three panelists, Rajesh Hamal, Bhawani Rana and Dr. Govinda Prasad Sharma joined the conversation. Moderated by Anil Keshari Shah, the panelists shared their perspectives on how we can actually conserve the health of soil and their personal efforts to do so. “This is our existential threat and we shouldn’t leave things for last moment,” said Rajesh Hamal. He continued to enlighten everyone that it’s never too late to start. Similarly, Dr. Govinda Sharma discussed about how humans are more responsible for the soil degradation than natural causes. Furthermore, Bhawani Rana talked about the effects of private sectors on the health of soil. “The private sectors are more focused on the technology than its effect on the soil or land, but private sectors can still contribute for the well-being of soil by going organic,” said Bhawani. The discussion ended with an enthusiasm of change that we can bring to our degrading soil.
