ClimateFast in collaboration with Drawdown Toronto, Eco-Just Food Network & Green Thumbs Growing Kids are presenting a series of webinars on agriculture, land-use and climate change.

“Learn how agriculture and changes in our food system can be a climate solution,” the event page shares. “Research by Project Drawdown has demonstrated that by scaling up existing solutions, land-use can become a carbon sink rather than a source, while securing future food production, protecting natural systems and creating a more equitable world.”

Groundwork: The Challenge and Promise of Regenerative Agriculture, will take place on Monday, July 12, 2021.

Speakers for this webinar include:

  • Allie Rougeot (MC), Fridays for Future Toronto coordinator
  • Isaac Crosby – Evergreen Brick Works
