Regenerative Farms

Food production is the sector that relies the most on natural resources, but it is also the main culprit of environmental degradation.

Agriculture is the foundation of food production and agro-ecosystems represent a direct link between nature and humanity. But, the increasing challenges climate-related extreme weather events, health pandemics, anthropogenic impacts, and future population growth stress the need for preserving natural resources.

Farmers of the future will be asked to produce more food with less water, less soil, less food loss and waste, and less pollution.

Regenerative Farms Learning Objectives

  • Food security
  • Regulate harvesting
  • Reduce food loss
  • Increase water-use efficiency
  • Value creation
  • Improve land and soil quality
  • Increase biodiversity
  • Fair pricing
  • Halt deforestation
  • Price volatility
  • Course Modules

    The course modules in the Regenerative Farms track are addressed through masterclasses and live conversations with experts in the field. The masterclasses are live sessions or thematic videos recorded by experts and provide a general overview of the topics. The current situation and future challenges are further explored and identified.

    Open Conversations

    Our open conversations between Future Food and experts dig deeper into thematic topics. Content focuses on sharing insights from daily practice, discoveries, and future solutions. These live sessions are interactive with the possibility to ask questions.

    Climate-Smart Agriculture

    Containing the expansion of arable land and reducing water stress, particularly in regions where these resources are already overused, represents a major challenge for farms of the future, that have to ensure food security to a growing global population.
