The event will promote new ideas that push the conventional boundaries of food systems thinking and highlight emerging researchers, innovative projects, interdisciplinary thinking and non-traditional collaboration.
“Our goal is to bridge the gap between academics and practice, situated within the context of New Haven’s continuing innovation in food systems,” said Hannah Walchak
’17 M.E.M., one of the event’s organizers. “The symposium is a rare chance for people from far corners of the ever-expanding food world to talk face-to-face and hash out solutions for feeding our growing world.”
Featured speakers include Wes Jackson
, president of The Land Institute, a science-based research organization that promotes an alternative to contemporary agricultural practices; and M. Ann Tutwiler
, director general of Biodiversity International, a global organization that conducts research for development and is a member of the CGIAR Consortium.
The daylong symposium will conclude with a dinner at the Yale Farm.
