Hybrid Event (Radcliffe): Feeding the Future - Food Sustainability and Climate Change
The 2023 Harvard Radcliffe Institute science symposium will explore the dilemma of addressing the global climate crisis while feeding the world’s population healthfully and equitably. How we produce, transport, prepare, and consume our food has direct implications for food access and security as well as for the future of the planet.
Tuesday, October 3, 2023 @ 6:00am-11:15am Pacific Time (9:00am–2:15pm Eastern Time)
Online via Zoom (details sent after registration) - or in-person at Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street Cambridge, MA 02138

Advances in plant genomics, innovative uses of ingredients and preparation, equitable methods of distribution, and even applications of artificial intelligence are carving out pathways for adaptive solutions, especially for resource-poor environments. Policies keyed to sustainable farming and diets in the United States and abroad will enable the agricultural sector, the restaurant industry, and individual consumers to help balance their food practices with a healthier environment.
Harvard Radcliffe Institute gratefully acknowledges the Melanie Mason and David W. Niemiec Fund for Science and the Ethel and David Jackson Fund for the Future Climate, which are supporting this event.
