REDUCETARIAN: 2017 Summit

May 20 - May 21

$79 - $379

We are thrilled to announce the first ever Reducetarian Summit, which will complement The Reducetarian Solution and bring together perspectives and technologies from all corners of the world to explore how to create a more equitable, compassionate and sustainable food system.

The central question of the 2017 Reducetarian Summit is: “How do we as individuals, organizations, communities, and societies work to systematically decrease meat consumption?”

We will examine a bit of the “why,” but focus heavily on the “how.” By bringing together hundreds of people from all areas of the reducetarian movement, this conference will take a deeper dive into possible solutions for pushing the needle on meat consumption.

The Summit will include high-profile speakers and moderators, workshops, breakout sessions, and panel discussions, multiple networking opportunities, and delicious meals sponsored by Fresh & Co.

  • A Broken Food System: How does conventional animal agriculture impact our world?
  • Changing Attitudes and Behaviors: How can we leverage mass communications tools and strategic messaging?
