Climate Change Addressed Through Increased Carbon Sequestration

April 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The importance of understanding the basic principles of ecosystem function in capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide as soil or organic carbon.

  • What does “Taking action on climate” really mean?
  • Why do we need to increase biodiversity?

Carbon sequestration is the process of capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide. It is one of several biological methods of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with the goal of reducing global climate change.

Increasing biodiversity allows for advancing succession, community dynamics and creating functioning ecosystems with carbon rich soils.

  • Wayne Van Balen MAIH RH 0027 Manager Registered Horticulturist Program – Basic facts and core issues.
  • Tig Crowley MAIH RH 0161, MAHMC, MAILDM (National Board Member) – The importance of Increasing Biodiversity for Functioning Ecosystem.
  • David Thompson Engagement Manager AIH/Media Officer Western Sydney University – A summary of the main results of the Carbon Sequestration experiments and results from research Western Sydney University.
