Unifying Vital Fields

By learning from those who have learned most from nature, we found an empowering way to consciously regenerate our world

Our Key Research

The founders of the Unifying Fields conducted 20 years of research into the causes and solutions of climate change, sustainable agriculture, food-forests, ways to restore the planet’s natural resources (soil, water, air) and ways to reconnect people with nature. During the last year we found an integral solution to address all challenges.

Here is a summary of our findings:

  1. In the last 12,500 years humanity cut and burned about 50% of all the trees on our planet. Click here for more.
  2. Trees transport water vapour from the seas and oceans to the landmass. In colonial times many trees were cut on the continental coastlines. This caused the hydrological cycle to be reduced by an estimated 50-80% across the entire landmass. Click here for more.
  3. In the last 12,500 years we conducted agriculture in a way that is not sustainable and will not provide enough food for a world of 9 billion people. Click here for more.
  4. The way agriculture was conducted in our history has caused an area of at least 2 billion hectares to be degraded and/or turned into desert – (that's twice the area of China). Click here for more.
  5. The Sahara desert was green, had rivers and lakes 5,000 – 6,000 years ago. Archaeologist have found that It is probable that human interference caused the drying out of the Sahara. This adds another 1 billion hectares of land degraded by human interference. Scientists have found similar evidence in most major 'deserts'. Click here for more.
  6. Trees are rainmakers. Trees evaporate water and create condensation nuclei which enable local and remote condensation of water. When trees are cut the land dries out. Click here for more.
  7. The water vapour that used to be transported to the land by trees is now above the oceans. This increased amount of water vapour is added fuel for hurricanes. Scientists have found that the energy released by the average hurricane has increased by around 70% in the past 30 years. Click here for more.
  8. The soil under trees acts as a sponge. The removal of 50% of all the trees has caused the water no longer stored in the soils of trees to be transported to the sea. This is a prime contributor to sea level rise, land erosion and floods. Click here for more.
  9. In colonial times the indigenous peoples were removed from their land. Those who survived the onslaught fled to areas in the mountains and far away hiding places. Currently the indigenous peoples still guard 11% of the worlds forest. It is there where 80% of the world’s biodiversity is preserved while abundant food is produced. Click here for more.
  10. Climate change is predominantly caused by deforestation and unsustainable agriculture. Therefore the solution for climate change lies in the combination of land regeneration methodologies in which reforestation and food production is combined. This solution can service the majority of 17 UN sustainable development goals. Click here for more.
  11. About 80% of all agricultural land in the world is used for cattle grazing and providing food for cattle and other animals. To ensure that we can feed all people in our world in the future a collective switch to a more balanced diet containing less (or no) meat is inevitable. Click here for more.
  12. A more natural diet with much less (or no) meat enhances human health and longevity as well as substantially reducing the cost of global health care. Click here for more.
  13. Being amongst the trees or walking in the forest reduces stress, enhances well-being and makes people experience their innate connection with nature. Click here for more.
  14. Connecting with nature and acting upon it in daily life makes us live a life in harmony with nature. Click here for more, and here, and also here.
