Carbon Sequestration and Startups Round Table Discussion and Breakfast
Limited Capacity filling up

Climate change is the largest challenge facing civilization. There are two ways to fix it: reduce greenhouse gas emissions or suck them out of the atmosphere. Human efforts have focused on eliminating emissions, while strategies for carbon drawdown have been comparatively ignored, until now.

Carbon farming with regenerative agriculture is a powerful way to sequester carbon in agroecosystems by producing healthy food for the world. Unfortunately, modern industrial agriculture is a climate catastrophe, causing roughly 1/3 of global warming through deforestation, soil degradation and resource-intensive food production. Humanity must transform agriculture from being a climate problem to a climate solution, creating food systems that rebalance the global carbon cycle.

This roundtable discussion will cover the innovation, movements, markets and cultural progress on using agriculture to drawdown atmospheric carbon. We’ll discuss carbon farming - what is it? And who’s doing it? We’ll review the rising regenerative agriculture movement. We’ll collectively ideate startup approaches to accelerate drawdown and carbon farming to reverse climate by creating true economic, ecological and social wealth.
