Allan Savory never ceases to amaze and encourage me. It was really great seeing him present his recent TED Talk — and we now have another opportunity to see him speak. Tufts University hosted an event where he was given the floor to discuss Holistic Management and the many challenges and successes experienced in its development.
I’ll be given a chance to see him in person this summer at the Caux Forum for Human Security in Switzerland during the week dedicated to a dialogue on land and security.
I attended the Caux Forum in 2011 for what was an inaugural discussion of the topic on Restoring Earth’s degraded land.
What was then a single day event has been extended to a week. It was here that I first met John D. Liu and eventually connected him to Geoff Lawton and Tony Rinaudo (who is credited with developing Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration), who coincidentally is also scheduled to speak at Caux this summer. That meeting led to the making of the VPRO Documentary "Green Gold" which seems to have struck a chord with many people.
Hopefully, another connection can be made leading to more interesting and inspiring work.
