A series of virtual events held every Friday and Saturday in October.
Soils are the greatest connectors of our Ecosystem. A superorganism of the biosphere. An immune system for our Earth, of our health. The living fabric that is always developing, always life-giving. Steadfast and powerful, as a resource, as our foundation for life. The support system of our infrastructure. Our investment. Soils are the foundation of diversity. Yours to discover!
The format of the symposium is interdisciplinary and very interactive, with time and priorities aimed at full audience/speaker/participant discussion, deliberations, development of hypothesis, methods, and ideas, leading to solutions and implementation through collaborations.
In order to realize our goals of interactivity and sense of place, we will be using the video conference platform: Gather. Gather allows conference participants to interact with one another in a custom 2-D world where interactions can be as spontaneous as at an in-person conference. Zoom is integrated into this platform, and will still be the primary platform for presentations, but all other conference sessions such as breakout rooms and discussions will take place using your virtual character. Urban Soils Institure invites you to take a look and explore the possibilities for yourself!
