At The Epicenter has been re-imaging our 2020 year within the nuances of the pandemic. In that exploration, we are sensing that producing an in person event in September is not in alignment for how best to position our programming for the reminder of the year. As such, with a heavy heart, we have determined to postpone the 2020 Regenerative Earth Summit at Expo East. 

Our Women Leading Regeneration Face to Face Online Gathering this past April exceeded all expectations and has inspired us to revamp our program intention and continue with a Women Leading Regeneration Series in June, July and August, offering shorter programs each month. In the fall, we are visioning a Regenerative Rising™ Virtual Event Series in collaboration with diverse groups from academia, business, policy, ranching and farming, investing and arts and communications.

Please signup for our newsletter if you would like to be informed of our engaged online gatherings this year.



Regenerative Earth Summit

September 22, 2020

Natural Products Expo East
Philadelphia, PA


“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 fourth annual Regenerative Earth Summit (RES20) - a unique convening of global leaders from across industry sectors, agriculture, academia and civic service. RES20 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 2020 Regenerative Earth Summit (RES20) 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 well-being 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 well-being 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

RES20 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.
