Renowned and engaged speakers will tackle thorny issues such as economic impacts from environmental efforts, engaging resistant communities in understanding climate change impacts, food scarcity and food waste diversion, sparking energy policy that protects under-served populations, balancing economic development with natural landscapes, and more.
