YOUR SEMINAR LEADERS

This seminar has been developed by Michael and Louisa Kiely, co-founders of the Carbon Coalition and directors of Carbon Farmers of Australia; a company dedicated to assisting Farmers to understand the challenges of climate change and vegetation, and the opportunities, and to be rewarded for the carbon they capture and store in soils as well as to assist farmers to understand the risks and potentials of this market. 

Michael and Louisa Kiely have been active the past six years campaigning for the right of farmers to sell the Soil Carbon they grow. They have presented to landholders for Catchment Management Authorities and LandCare groups, across Australia as well as audiences in America and New Zealand.
