A Virtual Event to Catalyze Investment in Europe’s Regenerative Agriculture & Food Sector
This event was held on January 25, 2023. Thank you to everyone who made it a success!
There’s a diverse and growing ecosystem of organizations working to transform Europe’s agriculture and food system from extractive and degrading to resilient and regenerative. This transition will require a profound mindset shift, deep collaboration, bold innovation … and capital.
The RFSI Europe event explored the critical role capital plays in enabling food system transformation across Europe. Event presentations, Q&A, and pitches connected the dots between the people, organizations, capital, and concepts that will drive lasting change for soil health, food quality, human health, and the planetary well-being.
RFSI Europe Agenda
Capital is a critical tool in enabling and incentivizing new practices within agricultural and food but capital is only as effective as those who deploy and activate it. The RFSI Europe program will bring a diverse European community together virtually to address the current funding landscape for regenerative agriculture and food in Europe, how investments are facilitating land transformation and building new supply chains, who some of the most innovative solution-builders are today, and how funders and investors are allocating to the space and why.
2-5 pm CET (Europe) • 8-11 am ET (United States)
