Food, Farming, and Sustainability Conference

September 13 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Free

The Environmental Sciences and Humanities Research Cluster at the Center for Science and Society invites you to “Food, Farming, and Sustainability.” With approximately 815 million people around the world currently undernourished and the global population expected to grow by 2 billion by 2050, two of the most pressing issues that humanity will face over the next 30 years is 1) the trend towards global hunger and 2) our ability to create innovative and equitable solutions to feeding the global population. Given that these issues are multidimensional and therefore cannot be solved through the lens of any one discipline, we will convene an interdisciplinary conference that will look at the cultural, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainability in our food system.

This one-day conference will entail a mix of panel discussions and individual presentations from the morning to early afternoon that will be open to the public, followed by a closed-door working group meeting for speakers. Advance registration for speaker sessions and panels required. Please click on the “Register” button above.

For a list of confirmed speakers and additional information, please visit the Center for Science and Society website.
