Farmers, ranchers, and land managers are at the forefront of climate change. They understand the threats that a changing climate can have on their operations and on their bottom line. There are tremendous opportunities that exist for farmers and ranchers to protect their businesses for generations to come. Many of these men and women are already leading efforts in sustainable agriculture that benefit soil, air, and water quality while helping to mitigate climate change by reducing emissions. By supporting climate-smart agricultural practices, rural communities and businesses can help slow the effects of climate change while creating jobs and growing the economy.
The White House will host a Champions of Change event recognizing several of these farmers, ranchers, land managers, agricultural educators, crop advisors, and other leaders who are taking steps to improve the sustainability of their operations, and educating others to do the same.
We are seeking Champions from a diversity of backgrounds and from small to large agricultural producers. Nominees may include:
Help us recognize these leaders in climate-smart and sustainable agriculture – nominate a Champion of Change for Sustainable and Climate-Smart Agriculture Producers today.
Please submit nominations by Monday, September 28 using Champions for Sustainable Agriculture as the field of service.
