We are delighted to learn that the Africa Centre for Holistic Management and Allan Savory have won the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Award. Allan Savory was our Feasta lecturer for 2009, and Feasta was interviewed at length about the value of Mr. Savory’s work before the award was announced. His lecture, “Keeping Cattle: Cause or Cure for Climate Crisis?” summarises his ideas about using livestock to restore degraded land and address climate change. You can find out more about Mr Savory’s work at the Savory Institute website.
