Here are the full summit details:

Public Conference Thursday, June 27, 2013

Time: 1:00pm-6:00pm

Influential thinkers and positive change makers will exchange their best ideas to inspire, focus, and strengthen individual and collective action for a sustainable food system.

This one-day event will shine a spotlight on and amplify the most important ideas, initiatives, and voices for the necessary food systems revolution. The power of this day and the hundreds gathered together will awaken some, re-energize others, help advance a shared vision for the future of food we desire, fortify the movement, and make clear specific ways each person can help transform the system.

Event Details The event will bring together influential and innovative voices from the sustainable food movement for this day of inspiration and call to action. The goal is to connect people across disciplines around the urgent issue of our broken food system and inspire people to take their place in the necessary revolution.

You can sit back and listen to the event’s internationally renowned speakers, and participate in conversation using the #UVMsummit hashtag. (Post your comments and questions – and they will be answered on the event’s blog after the conference).

What: Speakers will take the stage, give their 10-15 minute talk and then sit back down. The next speaker will immediately follow. There is not space for questions or comments or breakout sessions. There will be two breaks during the talks and a reception at the end, which are times to connect with fellow attendees and the speakers.

Speakers: Read the list of confirmed speakers here.
