Conference Call Guidelines for REGENERATE 2020
#1 – Regenerative Agriculture in the Face of Climate Change
Monday November 2 – 12:00-2:15 PM MDT
This plenary is the kick-off to all conference plenaries, keynotes, and film screenings! The first 15 minutes will welcome everyone to the conference. Please join us!
Plenary description: As beings of this world, we face unparalleled threats due to human-induced changes to our climate. We are witnessing global warming, wild fluctuations in weather, and more frequent and unpredictable natural disasters, rising sea levels, species extinctions, and more. And because of societal inequities, marginalized people are experiencing the worst byproducts of climate change. Join us in discussion of how we mitigate climate change through improved soil health and regenerative agriculture, adapt successfully to global warming, navigate private/public responses to climate change, and address the inequities of our ever-increasing “climate apartheid.”
