SOIL Co-Founder and Executive Director Dr. Sasha Kramer recently had the honor of joining Commissioner Bart Chilton for an in-depth interview on RT’s Boom Bust. They dove into the origins of SOIL’s work, the intersection of ecological principles and liberation theology, and the long-term impact that climate related catastrophes have had across Haiti.
What’s next on the horizon for SOIL and the sanitation sector at large? How can viewers at home who are inspired by SOIL’s work play a role in helping grow SOIL’s impact?
Thank you Dr. Kramer. Liberation theology is a wonderful frame for explaining how Haiti’s perceived weakness could be/ is its greatest potential strength. Reminds me of the Bible verse (though I’m not a Christian) “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.” Matt 5. And lord knows the earth will be inherited (if humanity can stick around long enough to inherit anything at all) by a culture that’s habitually creating more soil, not more garbage. Haitians are leading the way.
