What WWF Is Doing

2014 Fuller Science for Nature Symposium

Whole Planet, Full Plate
Finding ways to feed the world sustainably

Every year WWF’s Fuller Symposium convenes thought leaders in science, policy, business, conservation and development to tackle the emerging issues facing our planet. The 2014 Fuller Symposium will explore how we can freeze the footprint of food while still nourishing billions. We will look at the conservation opportunities and challenges we are facing and hear diverse perspectives on food production, distribution, consumption, waste, policy choices, and innovations that are shaping our food systems.

This year’s one day event will take place on November 12, 2014 at the National Geographic Society’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. It is free and open to the public.
