Whole Planet, Full Plate: Finding Ways to Feed the World Sustainably
By the year 2050, our planet will be home to another two billion people. How and where we will feed everyone, while not overwhelming our planet, has become one of the most pressing conservation issues.
The 2014 Fuller Symposium will discuss how we can freeze the footprint of food while still nourishing billions. It will bring together thought leaders in science, policy, conservation, business and development to explore the conservation opportunities and challenges we face and hear diverse perspectives on food production, distribution, consumption, waste, policy choices, and innovations that are shaping our food systems.
This one day event will take place on November 12, 2014 at the National Geographic Society’s Grosvenor Auditorium in Washington, D.C. It is free and open to the public. Cannot join us in person? The entire symposium will also be live streamed on WWF’s website.
Please join us for some sustainable hors d’oeuvres provided by Chef Bun Lai of Miya’s Sushi and Chef Matthew Crudder of Sodexo.
