All Week Long: Summer Summit–Labs
This year, the SeeChange Sessions have decided to switch up how participants can interact virtually - think university class, meets boardroom, meets think tank. These dynamic labs allow you to connect with the founders of incredible organizations, participate in real-world problems, debate, and discuss topics including:
- Depolarizing America
- Innovating with “Blue Materials”
- Environmental Justice
- Reimagining Rural
- Regenerating Soil
September 15: Sway: Revolutionizing Packaging with Seaweed
We can’t wait to hear from Sway, a U.S based startup that’s harnessing the power of seaweed to create compostable replacements for single-use plastics. These innovative “blue materials” are a huge step forward in the supply chain industry - while encouraging positive change for the future of people and the planet.
So if you’re a brand looking to take your first step toward mitigating your impact, don’t forget to listen in!
September 14: Kiss the Ground: What Stories Will Move Us to Action?
Tune in Wednesday to hear from Kiss the Ground, the organization behind the Kiss the Ground documentary on Netflix that has helped "regenerative agriculture" become a household term - and a hot topic at this year's summit.
As you know, we love that term here at SeaTrees - after all, our watershed restoration project in Maui is all about it! All our SeaTrees projects are part restoration, part conservation, and part regenerative agriculture. In case you missed last week's newsletter and our video with Eddy from REC, check it out here!
This lab will resurface all the innovative topics covered in the film, highlighting how the earth's soil may be the key to combating climate change and preserving the planet.
The truth is that most U.S. soils are severely degraded, causing flooding, droughts, loss of biodiversity, & loss of farmer livelihoods. But don't worry, hope isn't lost. Regenerative agriculture is the solution! Tune in to find out more and join millions of citizens across the nation to advocate for change. Click here to check out the full agenda.
Come join us at the Ebb & Flow show this weekend at Emeco House in Los Angeles.
The gallery donations, including raffle tickets and art sales, will go directly to supporting our SeaTrees Palos Verdes, CA kelp forest restoration project.
We love seeing all the different and creative ways that our partners are incorporating our #oceanplanet into different mediums. If you’re in the area, come check it out! Buy your tickets here.
