Biennial of the Americas datesThis year’s festival convenes an incredibly diverse group of environmentally-driven thought leaders and forward-thinkers, including Amazon Watch’s Leila Salazar-López, The Nature Conservancy’s Carlos Fernández, Colombian anthropologist Carlos Castaño-Uribe, Mexico-based sustainable fashion designer, Carla Fernández, and Uruguayan ethical clothing expert Agustina Comas, among many others!

Since our inception in 2010, we have prioritized sustainability as one of our programmatic pillars, infusing it into our festival content and year-round programming initiatives. In 2017, we partnered with The Nature Conservancy to launch The Youth Congress for Sustainable Americas, a network of young citizen leaders from across the Americas who are leading tangible action in their local communities around sustainability.

And don’t miss Conversations with Gen Z, an event that is sure to raise important questions from our passionate younger millennial generation invigorated by sustainability and environmental stewardship.
