Sector 8: Food, Water & Environment

The Food, Water & Environment Sector focuses on the reality that we are undergoing the “Sixth Great Extinction,” due to massive Earth Changes of both cyclical and man-made origins. As a result, thought-leaders in this Sector research and introduce novel approaches to preserving our natural resources: potable water, oceans and rivers, forests and wetlands, and the wildlife that lives in each of these interdependent eco-systems. This Sector also promotes appropriate production of food sources, including the latest research on organic farming, permaculture, and ethical livestock management.
