Regenerative agriculture offers a significant opportunity to transform food systems to life-enhancing systems, which restore and regenerate land, soil, waterways and biodiversity and improve farmed animal welfare.
Building on the aspirations of the UN Food Systems Summit last week - to move towards food systems that help us to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - Compassion is convening a dialogue to explore how to scale regenerative agroecological production for better human, animal and planetary health.
DATE: Monday 18th October
TIME: 2PM (BST)
- Highlight the perspectives of those already engaged in regenerative agriculture approaches including regenerative farmers and global food businesses.
- Discuss the key constraints holding back the wide adoption of regenerative agricultural practices.
- Explore how to create increased global support for an integrated, holistic approach to policy reform across the food system value chain in support of regenerative agriculture.
- Discuss recommendations for accelerating the emergence of regenerative agriculture as a key pillar of a sustainable food system.
- Examine how to realise the potential for a new generation of young regenerative farmers to enter the industry, and thereby scale it.
