The science behind human food domestication takes us 10,000 years into the past and into the future with even more acceleration. What are the protections and innovations that will ensure a healthy diet and a healthy planet? How can hunger be addressed in a population of 9 billion predicted by 2043? Speakers from Columbia University and the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science will present and lead discussions with participants. From international food systems to innovations in urban agriculture to individual health, attendees will come away with a better understanding of food security and nutrition on a global, local, and personal level.
