Feeding Our Soils, Feeding Ourselves: Making Land Stewardship a Viable Livelihood.
This conversation in our continuing series on Sustainability will delve into nature-based climate solutions as well as carbon farming. Allegra will help us understand the complexities and nuances of both, as they’re very big ideas with distinct goals and benefits for our future.

OUR ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY
NAVIGATING THROUGH COVID-19
The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
At TEDxSantaBarbara, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize two things: the health and the well-being of our community while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and courage informed by the latest science-based information.
As of now, we are postponing our main event in the Fall, to the first weekend in November 2021.
