Lecture: Changing Course in Global Agriculture

Monday, April 8, 2013 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Hans Herren, World Food Prize winner and president of the Millennium Institute, will present "Changing Course in Global Agriculture."

Agriculture must be at the core of any vision that sees all people having enough healthy food in a healthy environment. Today, 870 million people suffer from hunger in a world of food production surpluses and pre- and post-retail waste while unsustainable agricultural practices lead to environmental problems and threaten the health of our planet. Ecological and resilient agricultural practices conserve ecosystems and biodiversity and reduce environmental degradation. Small-holder farmers, when practicing sustainable agriculture, are the best stewards of our ecosystem.
