International experts will convene on World Food Day, Friday, October 16, to promote ideas and policy changes based on some of the latest evidence showing how transitioning to organic regenerative agriculture and land use practices have the capacity to reverse climate change by drawing carbon out of the atmosphere and sequestering it in the soil. At the same time, these practices can return stewardship of the land to local farmers and communities, thus strengthening local economies and alleviating hunger among those populations that are most at risk from climate-related disasters.
Speakers will include:
• Vandana Shiva (India: Navdanya)
• Christophe Malvezin (France: Agricultural Counselor, Embassy of France in the US)
• Ronnie Cummins (US: Organic Consumers Association)
• Tom Newmark (US: The Carbon Underground)
• Andre Leu (Australia: IFOAM Organics International)
• Precious Phiri (Africa: Africa Center for Holistic Management)
