“Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics”
~ David Attenborough


​Join At The Epicenter for the third annual Regenerative Earth Summit (RES19) - a unique convening of global leaders from across industry sectors, agriculture, academia and civic service. RES19 is outcomes based, recognizing the collaborative capacity to influence and accelerate systemic change by strategizing development of market incentives, policy, and supply investment that maximize benefit to people and planet. Viewing the earth as the source, not a resource, we will expand ourselves as an enriched community of stakeholders in regenerative action, exploring how to raise consumer understanding and move toward a diverse and inclusive economy that accelerates collaboration, transparency and urgency to heal our earth and ourselves.




Regeneration
re·gen·er·a·tion rəˌjenəˈrāSH(ə)n/
Regeneration is the process of renewal, and restoration that makes life and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Regenerative concepts take sustainability to the next level, moving from ‘doing less bad’ to actually ‘doing good’ for people and planet.



Why The Summit

The 2019 Regenerative Earth Summit (RES19) emphasizes organic and regenerative agricultural systems as the foundation of all agroforestry and agricultural supply. This emphasis is intended to galvanize a diverse Brand community around purchasing decisions that promote the health and wellbeing of people and planet from soil to finished product and enhances the resilience and profitability of farmers worldwide.

The foundational focus of our shared work is harnessing the power of commerce to provide wellbeing to people and planet in every step from production to product so we restore and regenerate our land, air, water, communities and biodiversity for generations to come.

Who’s Coming

RES19 draws from a diverse community of contributors and participants which includes farmers and ranchers as the foundation of the supply web; academics as experts on climate science and soil; entrepreneurs as powerful innovators and action takers; leaders in marketing and brand experts building bridges to consumer awareness and sales data; financial advisors and investors cultivating connections in successful financial models; vice presidents and chief executive officers as pioneers and leaders growing a necessary regenerative movement.

If you are bold, passionate and willing to be a catalyst for change — this event welcomes YOU.
