Veganic For Climate: Panel and Reception

August 3 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

As San Francisco gears up for the Global Climate Action Summit, Seed the Commons has launched #Veganic4Climate: a campaign that aims to center agriculture in the conversation on global warming and to promote veganic farming as the basis of a climate-friendly food system.

Join us as we present our campaign and speak of the why and how of veganic farming. The evening will include a panel with Nassim Nobari, Chema Hernández Gil and Mona Seymour, and a reception with light vegan refreshments.

Nassim Nobari is a co-founder of Seed the Commons. She will speak about why the environmental movement promotes small-scale animal agriculture, focusing in particular on the current trend that touts grazing as a solution to climate change, and she will show how these models reproduce some of the same problems they purport to solve.

Chema Hernández Gil is a co-founder of Seed the Commons. He will look towards pre-Columbian Mexico to reflect on how a food system based on vegan agroecological practices can help build our vision for tomorrow: urban societies that are equitable and sustainable.

Mona Seymour is a professor of Environmental Science at Loyola Marymount University. She will speak of the state of veganic farming in the United States and how to help the veganic movement grow.

This event is free, but donations are welcome to cover our costs and support the #Veganic4Climate campaign.
