John Fullerton to Speak at Regenerative Future Summit

May 15, 2017 - May 17, 2017

Host: At The Epicenter, Natural Capitalism Solutions, Alliance for Sustainable Colorado and Sustainability Innovation Lab at Colorado and Sustainability Innovation Lab at Colorado

Location: Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex, University of Colorado Boulder

Description: Our shared stories guide the future. The economic narrative that dominates today’s world views people and the environment as collateral in service to an all-knowing financial market. We need a new economic narrative, a regenerative approach to capitalism that produces well-being and a shared prosperity on a healthy planet.

The Regenerative Future Summit is a two and half day interactive, impact-driven conference. The Summit will bring internationally renowned thought leaders together with business, community and government leaders to envision a new economic narrative and develop plans to implement it in cities, energy, food and agriculture. The summit participants will work across sectors to explore action-oriented solutions that cultivate a regenerative economy.

The Regenerative Future Summit will provide opportunities for participants to apply regenerative economic principles in energy, food & agriculture and cities. The program will include local tours, keynotes, panel discussions, commentaries and authentic audience participation.

Wonderful Food in an Inspiring Setting
The Regenerative Future Summit is hosted at the new Sustainability, Energy Environment Complex at the University of Colorado at Boulder. It will feature delicious artisan, local, organic and regenerative meals and organize local dining out for affinity groups to continue their conversations in locally acclaimed restaurants in beautiful downtown Boulder, Colorado.
