Sadhguru on 100-day motorbike mission to save soil
London : One of India’s best-known spiritual leaders is embarking on a 100-day motorbike journey from London to India to raise awareness of one of nature’s most undervalued resources.
The journey is part of his Save Soil campaign, which is calling on policymakers to make soil regeneration a priority. The UN has said a third of soil globally is degraded and more than 90% could become degraded by 2050.
Manish Tiwari, MD of Here and Now365, spoke to Sadhuru in London. “I’m not a scientist, I’m not an environmentalist. I belong to the land, not to the lab, but I know there’s a soil crisis so I’m talking to as many heads of state, politicians, leaders, top scientists and influencers. Agriculture is a practical, economic and survival activity, which needs to be done judiciously according to the local conditions” said Sadhguru. “We’re using both motorcycles and music to connect with people so that 3.5 billion citizens understand that we must address this problem right now to make a significant turnaround within the next 10 to 15 years. It’s about turning the science into a social moment because otherwise, nothing changes,” he said.
