More on the speakers:

Walter Jehne is an internationally recognized climate scientist, soil microbiologist and innovation strategist. He has field and research experience in forests, grasslands, agriculture and soils at national (CSIRO) and international (UN) levels.  Walter’s scientific work has focused on soil biology, plant root ecology, mycorrhizal fungi, glomalin, soil-carbon formation, as well as on biology's enormous influence on hydrological cycles, weather patterns, regional and global cooling, air quality, and cloud formation and precipitation. He has a remarkable ability to explain complex systems in easy to understand ways. 

Walter has worked more broadly beyond science, at Federal Government level, leading transformation in industry and policy. This diversity of experience has given Walter a unique and exceptional capacity to devise multi-stakeholder win-win strategies – turning challenges into opportunities. This year he was part of an invitation-only UN-FAO conference in Paris looking at bringing soil into the next IPCC report.

For more on Walter Jehne's work, see www.globalcoolingearth.org <http://www.globalcoolingearth.org/>. Also search past videos of his workshop sessions and talks on YouTube using "Walter Jehne soil sponge".

Didi Pershouse is the author of The Ecology of Care: medicine, agriculture, money, and the quiet power of human and microbial communities <https://www.amazon.com/Ecology-Care-Agriculture-Microbial-Communities/dp/069261303X/> as well as Understanding Soil Health and Watershed Function <http://soilcarboncoalition.org/learn>. As the founder of the Center for Sustainable Medicine, she developed a practice and theoretical framework for systems-based ecological medicine—restoring health to people as well as the environmental and social systems around them.  

After 22 years of clinical work with patients, Pershouse now travels widely. Her workshops and talks engage farmers, schools, and watershed groups across the US in opportunities to improve soil health, public health, and climate resiliency through changes in land management. She is board chair of the non-profit Soil Carbon Coalition.
