Slow Seed Summit: Reckoning Race and “Regeneration” Beyond the Farm
For three days, hundreds of people from around the world will virtually gather, listen and discuss the regeneration of our world’s foodways to advance good, clean and fair food for all. Each day will focus on a new lens through which our attendees will listen, share and plan the future of our climate, health and food justice. Various technologies are impacting seed sovereignty of communities, and often these technological efforts jeopardize seed ownership and threaten Earth’s biodiversity, livelihoods, cultures and health. On May 14th, we explore the question: What does it mean to have sovereignty over a community’s seeds, and can we create mechanisms that facilitate a more regenerative ecosystem?
