Advancing Sustainable Communities: People, Pollinators & Practices

April 11, 2014 - April 12, 2014
Portland, Oregon

Advancing Sustainable Communities: People, Pollinators and Practices, the 32nd National Pesticide Forum, will allow grassroots advocates, scientists, policy makers and engaged citizens to interact and strategize on solutions that are protective of health and the environment.

April 11th – 12th, 2014

University Place Hotel and Conference Center (310 SE Lincoln Street in Portland)
 
Keynote presentations, workshops, and plenary panels will focus on solutions to the decline of pollinators and other beneficials; strengthening organic agriculture; improving farmworker protection and agricultural justice; and creating healthy buildings, schools and homes. By working with a range of environmental, health, consumer, and farm organizations, organizers expect to bring together a diverse crowd in order to share our efforts to build local, state and national strategies for strength, growth and health.
