To raise awareness of the importance of soil for food security, Isha founder and spiritual leader Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev said on Wednesday that the food consumed today belongs to the “unborn child” as the world is likely to plunge into a severe global food crisis over the next few decades. a

To raise awareness of the Save Soil movement at the United Nations in Geneva, Sadhguru on a panel with world leaders stressed the importance of people’s vote and voice in a democracy where “a government is elected to fulfill the mandate of the people”. He explained that unless people openly state that they want their leaders to invest in the nation’s long-term welfare, elected governments cannot act.

Describing the crippling global food crisis as a “crime against humanity”, he said the food we eat today belongs to the unborn child. “We need to excuse ourselves from this.”

The session was attended by the Director-General of the United Nations Office, Nadia Isler, Assistant Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Dr. Naoko Yamamoto, and Deputy Director-General for Programs at the International Union for Conservation of Nature Stuart Maginnis. Leaders expressed unanimous support and praise for the timing of the movement and the consensual need for collective action to restore and protect soils through the establishment of soil-friendly practices. They also expressed serious concerns about food security, climate change and geographic vulnerability.

In her opening remarks, the Ambassador of the Permanent Mission of India in Geneva, Indra Mani Pandey, expressed his happiness to see the campaign receive global support to reverse global soil degradation.

Nadia Isler, Director-General of the United Nations Office, said, “More than ever we live in interconnected and rapidly changing environments. The challenges we face are deeply intertwined and require mobilization at many different levels.” She focused on community participation in policies and actions at all levels. .

There is an urgent need for healthy soils for food security, nutrition and prevention of non-communicable diseases, said WHO Assistant Director-General Naoko Yamamoto. The President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, Stuart Maginnis, described the Save Soil movement as a message of urgency, hope and, ultimately, a message of love.
