The Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems
Sustainable Grain is hosting the inaugural First Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems to showcase and further explore the vital link between soil health, human wellness and climate change.
Farming and food systems have played a role in climate change, but they can be the solution too. Re-shaping and modernizing food production, finance and distribution models offers the potential for agriculture to become a powerful positive influence on the natural environment.
Some very special farmers across Canada are already proving this concept in their fields. Through agro-ecology and low-input farming, the growing movement around regenerative agriculture is showing how farmers can sequester carbon in soils, restore diversity and profitability on farms, and grow healthier food ingredients.
The network of presenters will include thought leaders from across Canada and global agriculture with subject matter expertise to support policymakers, innovators, entrepreneurs and ultimately farmland owners to create and support new sustainable and regenerative food production options for Canadian agriculture.
