  • What is meant by “regenerative agriculture” and how are regenerative agricultural and food practices being implemented today

  • Success stories of policy changes at the state and local level and how to build on these gains in your community
  • Action steps for both nonprofits and philanthropy
  • How to engage business on the path to a just transition
