2015 Quivira Coalition Conference – The Next Wave: Creating Abundance

Plentiful, ample, bountiful, generous, fertile, rich, replete–these are words that describe both the attitude and the goals of the next wave of agrarians. A social movement is like an ocean wave. It arises at a certain period of time, gathers strength, grows and works toward a defined goal, becoming an effective agent of change for a while. Eventually, a new wave with fresh ideas and energy heads toward shore, building on the earlier wave’s success. Today, the goal is to put the now large and diverse regenerative toolbox to work cultivating abundance for all. In this conference, we will hear from ranchers, farmers, scientists, activists and others who are leading this next wave. We’ll look down the road with them and share their thoughts on how to flourish amidst the emerging conditions and challenges of the twenty-first century.

GreenBiz Forum 2016
Feb 23 – Feb 25 all-day

JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, AZ

GreenBiz Forum 2016

GreenBiz Forum is framed by the State of Green Business report, GreenBiz Group’s award-winning annual accounting of key sustainability metrics and trends. The report, combined with the high-wattage stage presentations, workshops and networking opportunities that have become hallmarks of GreenBiz events, create a powerful event that has become one of the top annual gatherings for sustainability professionals. The 2016 Forum will include conversations with C-level execs across a range of functions — CEOs, COOs, CTOs, CIOs, CMO, etc. Conversation will focus on how non-sustainability executives view such topics as Sustainable Supply Chains, Corporate Energy Strategy, Employee Engagement and Retention, Natural Capital Accounting, and Carbon and Water Risk Mitigation.
