Sadhguru is a world-renowned yogi who is currently turning the world's attention to the quality of our soil. And it's the final week to enter Miss Tourism for Luxembourg! Giuseppe Catellaneta tells us more. Netty Thines talks about the Luxilux app to discover the city, and Sasha Kehoe gives us a round-up of the week's news.

Sadhguru, 64, is a busy man. A man who only needs a first name.

Perhaps you know of him due to his lifetime's work as a yogi and spiritual leader. Or you may have become more recently acquainted with his beneficent face as he travelled across 27 countries on his motorcycle: 30,000km in 100 days; raising awareness of his Save Soil campaign, generating the world's largest people's movement.

In this interview he talks of the urgent action required in order to feed our soil, otherwise we in turn cannot be fed. Sadhguru has been talking to policy makers and farmers for over 30 years about the state of the soil, and says that no one took action.

"30 years of soil degeneration - a good pillow to sleep on."

Save Soil is a global response to this crisis.

Across the world soil is dying. 52% of agricultural soil is already degraded. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation says we may have only 60 years of agriculture left if soil degradation continues, inevitably resulting in a global food crisis.

Sadhguru's educational track did not follow what we, today, might consider to be the 'intellectual' path. And yet he always observed, listened and remains curious. His travels and ability to work with people all over the world means his observations are global. On education he says:

"The biggest mistake we have made in the process of creating human societies is the way we have structured education. We have made people misunderstand that memory is intelligence."

Sadhguru founded the Isha Foundation in 1994, which is a yoga and spiritual non-profit organisation.

He is also the guide and inspiration for the Sadhguru Center for a Conscious Planet established by Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess Center.
