Advancing Stewardship:
Innovative Approaches for a Thriving Planet

We are excited to announce our inaugural conference will be held October 9-11, 2024 at Wake Forest University.

Keynote Speaker Elizabeth Kolbert

The evening of Thursday, October 10, will feature a keynote from Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winning science writer and journalist for The New Yorker. One of today’s most prominent voices on the critical environmental issues of our time, Ms. Kolbert’s books include The Sixth Extinction, winner of the Pulitzer in 2015, 2021’s Under a White Sky, and this year’s H is For Hope, “a hauntingly illustrated journey through the history of climate change and the uncertainties of our future.”
