SPEAKERS

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.
