Diana Donlon is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Soil Centric. A soil and climate advocate, she has a proven history of creating widespread awareness about the importance of healthy soil to climate stability at the local, national and international level. Prior to founding Soil Centric, Diana was the director of the Center for Food Safety' Soil Solution's program. Soil Solutions to Climate Problems, a short film she conceived of and produced, was screened during the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) in December 2015. The piece created an aesthetic that has been widely emulated, and its animated footage has been incorporated into several feature-length documentary films. Diana is a skilled public speaker, excels at identifying trends, and brings a depth of social and intellectual capital to the soil and climate movement. She has degrees from UC Berkeley and the Harvard Graduate School of Education and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco.
