10th Annual Stinner Summit

The Agroecosystems Management Program (AMP) will host the 10th Annual Stinner Summit at the Stratford Ecological Center in Delaware, Ohio on October 14th, 2016.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Stinner Summit, we’re going back to the roots – Ben Stinner’s outstanding ability to find common ground, ways that people can work together toward the common purpose of healthy agroecosystems and sustainable communities.  Participants will be challenged to find that common ground.  In keeping with the original spirit of the Summit, we will fund a maximum of four projects.  Our hope is for everyone to come together and agree on one project, and if they can we’ll support it with $40,000.  But if agreement can only be reached by smaller groups proposing 2-4 projects, then there will be less support available in total and per project.

During registration you will be asked to share what you think is the biggest opportunity or most pressing challenge to healthy agroecosystems and sustainable communities in Ohio.  We’re not looking for a project idea, we want the current topics that are most important for us to discuss together.  We will use your responses to guide our initial discussions on the way to finding your common ground.
