Overview

On September 27th - 29th, 2019, we will be hosting the third annual Reducetarian Summit. The keynote speech will be delivered by best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the forthcoming book, We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast (Farrar, Straus and Giroux: 09/17/2019).

The summit will take place over three days in Washington D.C. at The Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel. The goal of the Reducetarian Summit is to bring together people and perspectives from all corners of the world to explore strategies and tactics for reducing societal consumption of animal products and ending factory farming. In addition to several moderated panels, lightning talks, and fireside chats, a greater emphasis will be placed on skills building workshops and curated networking opportunities. The Reducetarian Summit also features a full expo showcasing delicious plant-based food. The Reducetarian Summit is designed to complement the The Reducetarian Cookbook (Hachette Book Group) The Reducetarian Solution (Penguin Random House). 

This two-day conference will bring over 500 participants from various industries including tech entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, journalists, environmentalists, CEOs, animal advocates, nutritionists, effective altruists, academics, students, and non-profit executives to engage with nearly 100 speakers, panelists, and exhibitors.
