LAND (SOIL HEALTH)
Human civilization is built upon the land. Even in this digital age, many aspects of our well-being and prosperity are heavily dependent on our relationship with the land, and the many amenities and opportunities afforded by good land stewardship. The growth of our civilization, however, has led to new stresses being applied to our landscapes. Some regions continue to see their best agricultural lands converted to other uses, while others are witnessing a significant degradation of soil quality.
In this session, we will examine humanity’s relationship with the land, both globally and here in Alberta. As our province continues to develop regional land use plans, we will consider challenges and opportunities, and the importance of land use policy.
