Join us in this panel discussion on regenerative agriculture as a tool to fight climate change.

The session will begin with an introduction to regenerative agriculture by Karin Hanzi, a leader in permaculture in Brazil, and by Dr. Silke Bollmohr, an environmental scientist with experience on the impact of conventional agriculture on health and environment. Shortly after this contextualisation, we'll start a panel discussion around the successes and challenges of B Corps implementing regenerative agricultural practises in the race to combat climate change. The panel will be composed by B Corps: Vava (Kenya), Endiro (Uganda), Guayaki (USA), Riverford (UK) and Tierra de Monte (Mexico). These five B Corps from different parts of the world will share their approach towards Regenerative Agriculture, and their vision for the future of Agriculture.
