Session #12 - Bioremediation: Regenerative Remedies for Toxic Realities

Th 25 May 2023 17:00 – 20:30, Screening, Food & Conversations - KABK Auditorium, The Hague

You are welcome to join a new session of the KABK Studium Generale Spring Cycle Kindred Soil.

How can we engage the power of living systems to heal toxic and damaged soils and support ecological recovery and resilience?

We will explore collaborations with the many bacteria, fungi, and plants that are some of the Earth's finest and oldest disaster responders, alchemists, and healers. Through the use of plants (phytoremediation), bacteria (microbial remediation) and fungi (mycoremediation), heavy metals and chemicals in contaminated soils and water may be immobilized, extracted or broken down.

This conversation will provide an introduction to different bioremediation tools for detoxifying and revitalizing the gardens, lands and waters that nourish and sustain us, highlighting community projects and inspiring practitioners who are working with regenerative remedies to transform toxic realities.
