Marcus Samuelsson On Jan 10 Museum Panel "How To Feed a Growing Planet"

News posts

In the next 30 years, global population is estimated to surpass 9 billion people. Will there be too many people, and too little food? How will climate, politics, and economics impact food systems and food security on our growing planet?

Chef, author, and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson will be part of a January 10, 2013 Museum panel, entitled "How To Feed a Growing Planet." He recently visited the exhibition Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture and shared his thoughts on some of the food policy challenges we face locally and globally.

Samuelsson will join activist and best-selling author Raj Patel (Stuffed and Starved, Food Rebellions, and The Value of Nothing), and geneticist Molly Jahn (former USDA Deputy Under Secretary and University of Madison-Wisconsin professor) in an exciting round-table moderated by NBC News Chief Science and Health Correspondent Robert Bazell. The panel will dispel myths about population growth and food security, highlight the breakthroughs and perils of cutting-edge technologies, and share promising local and global solutions.
