2021 National Pesticide Forum: Cultivating Healthy Communities

Event Date: 
May 24, 2021 to June 15, 2021

Scientific understanding. Collective action. Systemic change. A toxic-free future. Organic transition. The serious and existential environmental and health challenges that we face bring an urgency to the focus of the 2021 National Pesticide Forum and the work that is going on in communities around the U.S. and the world. Central to the solution is the elimination of petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers in exchange for regenerative organic land management and nontoxic materials that stop the harm from toxic chemical production, use and disposal. We recognize that this is the only way to protect our children and families, those in workplaces, pets, pollinators and the rich diversity of organisms essential to life.

The Forum brings together scientists, policymakers, practitioners, advocates and activists to elevate with greater clarity the threats associated with environmental decline and collapse and the urgency with which we need to adopt solutions that are within our grasp. We are holding this meeting as the ecosystems that sustain life are collapsing. We are seeing elevated rates of disease, a climate crisis that is escalating and biodiversity in precipitous decline.

The Forum takes place virtually May 24 and 25, and June 1, 8 and 15.
May 24: 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m. ET and 1:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m. ET for the days that follow.
