Carbon Farming is a new way of farming where changes in agricultural practices allow to increase the amount of carbon in the soil – carbon that otherwise ends up as CO2 in the atmosphere causing climate change. It is one of the key ways the food supply system can contribute to tackling the climate crisis, and help the EU and its member countries to reach their 2050 carbon neutrality goal.
What are the possibilities of Carbon Farming? What kind of methods are possible or already in use, and what does science say about their effectiveness? Join the Geoscience Day to hear all about these questions and discuss them with experts. There will be light lunch and coffee/tea service available for registered participants free of charge.
The speakers of the event include experts from the Czech Ministry of Agriculture, Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the Carbon Action platform, Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE), Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) and Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).
