WWF’s Fuller Symposium convenes thought leaders in science, policy, business, conservation and development to tackle emerging issues facing our planet and advance science-based approaches to protect the future of nature. The 2014 symposium focused on how we can freeze the footprint of food while still nourishing billions. It explored the conservation challenges and opportunities we face by looking at diverse perspectives on food production, distribution, consumption, management and waste.
