So much about our lives changed in 2020. A novel virus spread rapidly, businesses shuttered and changes in food production, purchasing and delivery tested supply chains like never before. As the year continued, U.S. communities from coast to coast wrestled with the pain of racial inequity. The climate crisis continued to unfold, setting a new annual record for climate related disasters in the US. And contentious elections have delivered new leadership to White House and Congress.

Now is a moment unlike any in recent memory. Against this backdrop, our country’s food system – from producers to consumers – appears to be rapidly evolving, as well. How are US farmers and ranchers responding, and what’s ahead for agriculture? Out of the disruption of 2020, can a new system emerge that helps farmers move towards more regenerative practices, and add revenue streams from carbon markets and other ecosystem services?

From Feb. 23-25, the 2021 Trust In Food Symposium: Regenerative Reset will help leaders from farms, agribusinesses, conservation organizations, farmer associations, food companies, food retail, government agencies and other sectors make sense of the changing landscape and position themselves for success.

Interested in joining the conversation and positioning your organization for sustainability leadership in 2021?
