Back to Results
How can we meet the food needs of a growing human population without doing irreparable damage to the planet? Join us on Thursday March 8, for a conversation focused on the Future of Food in a Wealthier, Warmer World. Around the world, increases in population, urban density and economic prosperity will lead to unprecedented demands for both more and different foods, placing added strain on our natural resources.
Panelists Jason Clay, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Markets & Food for the World Wildlife Fund, and Allison Miller Ph.D., Department of Biology, Saint Louis University will discuss the nexus of food production and the environment to ensure that both human needs and environmental sustainability are met. The program will be moderated by Young Friends Chair, Stephanie Regagnon, CEO of FieldWatch, Inc.
A networking reception in the McDonnell International Gallery begins at 5:15 PM followed by the program at 6 PM in the AT&T Auditorium.
Reservations are complementary but required. To register click here or call 314 587-1070.
Plants hold the key to ensuring a sustainable future, with enough food, fuel and ample renewable resources for all. In addition, they clean water and soil and improve the quality of air that we breathe. At the Danforth Center are working to develop more productive, resilient plants for a better future for generations to come.
The Conversations Series is organized by members of the Danforth Center Friends Committee, offering individuals the opportunity to learn about the work of the Center and the partners who help to sustain it.
