Inspirational ideas: Finnish carbon farmers take climate action
Agriculture has an enormous potential to store organic carbon in soils, plants and trees, reducing CO2 emissions that contribute to global warming. Healthy soils help to mitigate the effects of climate change and lead to better yields, more biodiversity and improved ecosystem services. Together with over 100 Finnish farms, the Carbon Action Platform develops climate-friendly, regenerative farming practices that accelerate soil carbon sequestration.
"Soil carbon sinks are one of the most effective climate solutions we have", says farmer and Platform board member Juuso Joona.
Farmers receive training, attend demonstration events and get peer support from a network of experienced 'carbon farmers'.
