2019 Concordia Americas Summit

MAY 13-14, 2019  |  BOGOTÁ, COLOMBIA

Launching at the beginning of the year, our Americas Initiative has, to date, hosted the Presidential Debate, convened a panel of experts to analyze the answers given by the presidential candidates, and featured a series of roundtable discussions. We are delighted to be returning to Colombia to continue critical discussions as the nation approaches a crossroad of historical significance. Bringing together renowned political, guild, and business leaders, academic experts, and representatives of leading non-governmental organizations, the 2018 Concordia Americas Summit served as the first global platform through which to advise the incoming administration prior to its inauguration in August, while addressing the political and economic priorities of Colombia and Latin America as a whole. The 2019 Concordia Americas Summit will continue to be a nonpartisan forum to build partnerships for social impact.


Regenerative Earth Summit 2018

“There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet”
~ Brooke Medicine Eagle 

Plan to participate in the premier gathering of leaders in Organic and Regenerative Food, Farming and Fashion for Climate Action. Held in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, The Regenerative Earth Summit: Food + Fiber + Climate gathers influencers, designers, producers, ranchers, academics, and industry and community leaders for transformative conversations and action planning. The Summit is designed to provide a context to build strategies and match resources across food and fashion industries to influence and accelerate systemic change in land to market systems. Together, the two industries can contribute to the regeneration of critical ecosystems while supplying raw materials of the highest quality and efficacy to meet consumer demand for traceability and eco-conscious products.

Why The Summit

Fashion and Food are two of the biggest polluters on the planet. Agriculture plays a role in both and offers a pathway toward more restorative and regenerative practices for each industry to reduce its toxic impact. The Regenerative Earth Summit is boldly breaking down silos. Together these industry leaders will explore how new approaches to sourcing, traceability, and partnerships with producers can transform their carbon footprint, restore ecosystem resilience and mobilize their industries for systemic change.

Who’s Coming

At the Epicenter convenes visionaries from the food and fashion industries, farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, investors, activists, and academics who are willing to work collaboratively to tackle the audacious vision of shifting how agriculture is practiced. With mindfulness practice, interactive working sessions, Regenerative Slams, and panel conversations, colleagues will generate ideas and actionable steps to change the status quo and bring new vigor and rigor to sourcing and partnerships across sectors. By focusing on restoration of soil health we cure a host of challenges. Deficient nutrient density in food, excessive carbon in the atmosphere, hydrology and ground water recharge, biodiversity and pollinator health – the list is endless and it begins beneath our feet.

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