2014 National Pesticide Forum: Pesticides 101





The 32nd National Pesticide Forum, was held April 11-12, 2014 at the University Place Hotel and Conference Center at Portland State University.



The conference was convened by Beyond Pesticides, Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides and Portland State University's Institute for Sustainable Solutions.



The Forum provided an opportunity for grassroots advocates, scientists, and policy makers to interact and strategize on solutions that are protective of health and the environment. Keynote presentations, workshops, and plenary panels focused on solutions to the decline of pollinators; strengthening organic agriculture; improving farmworker protection and agricultural justice; and creating healthy buildings, schools and homes.
