Soil Not Oil Conference


September 11, 2018 all-day
Grey Area/Grand Theater
2665 Mission St
San Francisco, CA 94110

This year’s Soil Not Oil Conference has an amazing lineup of keynote speakers including Vandana Shiva, Tom Goldtooth, Miguel A. Altieri, Starhawk, Wenonah Hauter and John Dennis Lu, with dozens of presentations from activists (including ourselves and allies, workshop TBA) working on community-powered solutions to climate change.

The conference will showcase agro-ecological practices—regenerative agriculture, no-till/bio-intensive farming, permaculture—as well as grassroots-originated solutions that people in the global south have creatively implemented to adapt and prevent the ecological and social impacts of climate change.

Miguel Robles, who started the annual conferences in 2011, writes:

“We trust the traditional knowledge of indigenous people and we honor the borderless collaboration among organizations leaded by women, caretakers of the land, elderly, youth and others that not always are fairly represented.  This year our goal is to provide a platform in which the voiceless can speak in behalf of their communities on live-streamed presentations.

Soil Not Oil is an educational event in which attendees learn the root causes, effects and solutions to climate change. We highly recommend it to students, educators, activists, farmers, scientists, investors, policy makers, health providers, parents, urban planners and everyone else concerned with life on earth.”
