Applying Equity in Practice in Regenerative Agriculture
In 2021, OpenTEAM introduced an equity lens to the work that we do so that we can design a technology ecosystem that is more accessible, equitable, and universal for the diverse group of farmers and food companies that are a part of it. Creating a toolkit that is open source, interoperable, and free to use will open pathways for increased involvement from a wider scope of the agricultural community. Through a working group and a recent Collabathon series, OpenTEAM and its members are developing the knowledge necessary to implement these equity principles into practice in regenerative agriculture and the ecosystem we are building. Sign up for this webinar to learn about the equity principles and how they are being weaved into the agricultural technology ecosystem and toolkit that we are building.
About The Webinar Series
Over the last 3 years, OpenTEAM has collectively designed and built a free, equitable, open source toolkit that provides a framework for universal access to agricultural knowledge, laying the groundwork to accelerate future development that is responsive to the needs of producers, purchasers, governments and markets. We are incorporating an equity lens into the work that we do so that we can design a technology ecosystem that is more accessible, equitable, and universal for the diverse group of farmers and food companies that are a part of it. By acting as a convener, technology steward, and facilitator, OpenTEAM is sharing agricultural knowledge and increasing interoperability for a cohesive, sustainable technology ecosystem that supports farmers and ranchers globally.
Join us for our “Creating the Ag Tech Ecosystem,” webinar series that features this work, why it is important, and our progress from 2021. You will hear a wide range of panelists from across the OpenTEAM community discuss equity in agriculture, data interoperability & architecture, soil health measurement protocols, and avenues of community building and governance. We will share why incorporating each of these into the sustainable technology ecosystem we are creating are fundamental to the future we envision and how you can get involved in this work.
