The Consortium for Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability (CESAS) at Kansas State University and its partners will host the Sixteenth Annual Dialog on Sustainability on “Carbon Sequestration” on Saturday morning, July 10, 2021, using Zoom.

This year's dialog will focus on carbon sequestration in soil and vegetation. Many soils can be improved by increasing organic carbon in the soil to improve soil health and water holding capacity. Finding ways to sequester carbon in soils, trees, and other vegetation is important to reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. There are contaminated sites where establishing vegetation may be very beneficial. Many Brownfields can be transformed to productive properties. New forests can be established, and carbon sequestration in Kansas can be increased substantially. There are many locations where planting trees will improve the ecosystem. The anticipated audience will include students, faculty, foresters, farmers, leaders, members of communities and environmental organizations.
