About the 2022 Westheimer Peace Symposium:

Join us for the 32nd Annual Westheimer Peace Symposium entitled, “Regenerative Agriculture for a Just and Peaceful Future” with panels starting at 9:00 a.m. and activities ending at 5:00 p.m. Highlighting this year’s event will be a keynote address Wednesday, September 28th, from 7:00-8:15 p.m. featuring Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science, The Ohio State University, Dr. Rattan Lal.  For five decades Lal has traveled all over the world, conducting research in the field of carbon sequestration, a practice that has been shown to significantly reduce carbon in the atmosphere while simultaneously restoring soil depleted by years of industrial farming.  Lal will be joined during the day by Ohio leaders of regenerative agriculture who will share their years of expertise in ecological farming. 

 

About the Westheimer Peace Symposium:

The Westheimer Peace Symposium, established in 1991 by a generous endowment from Charles and May Westheimer, is an annual event with four rotating themes: Peace and Nonviolence; Peace and Social Justice; Peace and the Environment, and Peace and the Nature of War. As a result, it is a key reflection of Wilmington College's Quaker heritage and its core values of peace, social justice, respect for all persons, and integrity.
