We have a lot of work to do. We are currently living well beyond our planetary boundaries and extracting far more than our planet can provide. We need to build the new regenerative system that will replace the current degenerate system.
About Andre Leu
André Leu was named international director of Regeneration International in 2017. Previously he was president of IFOAM—Organics International, the international umbrella organization for the organic sector. IFOAM, which has about 850 member organisations in 127 countries, was a founding member of RI. During his tenure as president of IFOAM, Leu served on the RI steering committee.
During 40-plus years of visiting and working in more than 100 countries, Leu acquired an extensive knowledge of farming and environmental systems across Asia, Europe, the Americas, Africa and Australasia. He and his wife, Julia, run an organic tropical fruit farm in Daintree, Australia.
Leu is an international lecturer who has spoken at the United Nations and at conferences, seminars, universities and workshops. He advises governments, industry, farmers, consumers and NGOs on the multi-functional benefits of regenerative organic agriculture.

Colin Seis y Neils Olsen son dos agricultores australianos que son pioneros de un sistema de cultivo de cobertura llamado cultivo en pastos o pasture cropping, donde el cultivo comercial se planta en pastos perennes en lugar de en el suelo desnudo. No solo es más rentable, sino que aumenta la materia orgánica y la fertilidad del suelo.
Colin Seis and Neils Olsen are two Australian farmers that are pioneers of a cover cropping system called pasture cropping where the cash crop is planted into a perennial pasture instead of into bare soil. It not only is more cost efficient but it increases soil organic matter and soil fertility.
Hay un desastre a largo plazo que es mucho peor que la pandemia de COVID-19. La pandemia terminará en unos años. Sin embargo, el mundo perderá muchos millones de personas más a causasde enfermedades, hambre, pobreza y eventos climáticos catastróficos como resultado de una emergencia climática sin precedentes.
There is a long-term disaster far worse than the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic will end in a few years; however, the world will lose many millions more to sickness, hunger, poverty and catastrophic weather events because of the unprecedented climate emergency.… Read more here
Some members of our team are in Madrid this week, to help kick off the official COP25 global climate summit. But many of us are in Santiago, Chile. Chile was supposed to host COP25—until mass protests, triggered by social and economic injustices, forced a last-minute change in venue. Rather than abandon our South American allies in the Regeneration Movement, we chose to follow through with plans, initiated early in 2019, for strategy and training sessions to bring regenerative solutions to a country in crisis.
Transitioning a small proportion of global agricultural production to regenerative agriculture and regenerative grazing systems will sequester enough CO2 to reverse cli-mate change and restore the global climate.
