In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, this year’s conference will set the stage for a convergence between the past and the present. We will highlight the confluence between the traditional conservation and restoration of the planet and new, ecological innovations taking place in areas such as genetics and engineering. We will discuss how we can leverage the best aspects of the past environmental movements while incorporating an increased sense of social justice. And, perhaps most importantly, we will honor those with wisdom of the natural world, while exploring new lessons that can help us all to be better environmental citizens. Join us as we work together to craft a future filled with hope, positivity, and intentionality.
