Eating is an agricultural act –Wendell Berry, Writer, Farmer and Environmental Activist, 1990This perspective has only become more critical as we enter the Climate Decade. The actof eating connects agriculture, nature, climate change, water, and other systems. This is our last chance to curb global emissions, halt biodiversity loss and prevent the sixth mass extinction.

Increasing demands on agricultural systems are affecting global food supplies and damaging ecosystems. In response, governments, businesses and farmers around the world are counteracting through policy, innovation and practice to protect nature, boost yields and capture carbon.

Join governors, business leaders, farmer representatives and NGOs as we discuss the solutions, remaining challenges and regenerative potential of transforming our food systems –or the act of eating –from emissions sources to emissions sinks.
