A dialogue on Regenerative Agriculture: Why is it taking the world by storm and what are the broader implications for farmers and food systems?
On May 11th from 15:00-16:15 CEST, Dr Tara Garnett (TABLE) will be moderating a conversation between Dr Yichao Rui (Rodale Institute) and Prof Ken Giller (Wageningen UR).
The central question of this dialogue will be how each speaker understands the concept Regenerative Agriculture and reflects on its potential and limitations. This will lead us to a range of questions such as:
> How is Regenerative Agriculture different from Agroecology, Organic and Conventional?
> What is meant by soil biological health? Is it important?
> Does the science support the claims that Regenerative Agriculture makes?
> How should Regenerative Agriculture respond to corporate capture and greenwashing?
We’ll be practicing dialogue rather than debate, and having a conversation grounded in science, that will also bring about value-based reflections and conclusions.
We welcome students and researchers, NGOs, policymakers and food system professionals!
