350 Bay Area and 350Marin are proud to co-sponsor the 2015 Soil Not Oil Campaign's International Conference to advocate for the sustainable and regenerative management of soils while reducing dependency on fossil fuels.

The Soil Not Oil Campaign will promote respect for soils worldwide, highlight the ways that shifting agricultural practices is key to combating climate change and call for integrated action on sustainable agriculture and clean energy to ensure a safe and healthy planet for generations to come.

The 2015 Soil Not Oil International Conference is a cross-sector, inter-ethnic and multilevel gathering that will feature dozens of scientists, elected officials, policy makers, attorneys, farmers, environmentalists, journalists, researchers, community members and agtivists.

The 2015 Soil Not Oil Conference examines the crisis on food security while highlighting the implications of oil based agro-chemicals and fossil fuels in soil depletion and climate change. The first edition of this conference will focus on educating, through national and international experiences, about the multiple problems and possible practical solutions that surround the profound consequences resulting from synthetic enhanced agriculture in industrialized nations.
