Food for thought: rethinking the global food system in the age of the climate crisis Climate Resolutions
Global food systems are both major drivers of the climate crisis, and significantly under threat by a rise in global temperatures. It is estimated that up to 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions stem from the global food system. What is clear is that a new approach is needed. Farming, agriculture, food delivery, and consumption all must be transformed and reimagined to mitigate the climate crisis - join us to learn from leading experts on how these industries will be remade.

Climate Resolutions: Ending the war on the natural world
Climate change has already had an outsized impact upon the world.

Join this panel to hear from young leaders more about how the climate crisis can be collectively addressed and overcome through global and unprecedented solutions.

Cross Border Conservation: An Orbital Perspective from NASA Astronaut Ron Garan
Climate change does not respect national boundaries - why are our solutions confined to them? Too often, governments approach this issue as a national problem, and not what it actually is - a cross border challenge. Join us to hear from NASA astronaut Ron Garan directly, and learn more about the need for transnational action on conservation.

Why everyone hates vegans and what we can do to change that
The scientific consensus is that we need a shift to plant-based diets to limit climate change and protect nature. But vegan activism gets a bad wrap. How can we advocate for sustainable, healthy diets effectively, without putting people off? The panel will explore activism from all angles and how we can all work to achieve a sustainable food system.
