About the Event
To achieve innovative solutions for sustainable food systems that are scalable, we need to bring together the best minds from across sectors. This event will highlight promising partnerships among key stakeholders that reimagine externalities in food systems and work with agricultural innovators to produce real social, environmental, and economic benefits. Attendees will learn about “payment for ecosystem services” programs that incentivize farmers to produce valuable ecosystem services as well as food and livelihoods from working landscapes; bold actions for equity in food systems through Milk with Dignity, the pioneering farmworker driven labor standards program in the U.S. dairy industry; and research on the social dimensions of food systems that explores how and why farmers adapt to environmental change.
