The Day After Tomorrow (Holistic Management Conference)
17 July 2013
The Holistic Management Conference,The day after tomorrow, to be held on 6 August at the Australian National Field Days Site, Orange, will be joined by Dr Allan Savory (The Savory Institute and Chairman of the Africa Centre for Holistic Management) who will talk about "Removing Barriers to Solving the Climate Crisis".
Dr Allan Savory has spent 50 years working on ideas that have won international prizes, and the online video of his recent TED talk has garnered 1.7 million views.
Mr Savory's obsession is the world's vast grasslands, which make up 60 per cent of the planet's landmass but tend to be far from urban hubbub. Until recently, his provocative concepts were routinely dismissed.
Now, the former African game ranger, guerilla fighter and rancher is gaining traction with his idea that strategically managed herds of livestock are humanity's best chance of stopping and reversing the desertification of grasslands - and at the same time, make a substantial contribution to the halting of climate change. This concept, and how his ideas have been implemented across the world, will be discussed by Dr Savory.
Maj. Gen. Michael Jeffery AC AO CVO MC (Chairman Soils for Life; Advocate for Soil Health) will present the inaugural Bruce Ward and George Gundry Legacy Lecture.
