Description

Food is a central part of life and the health of the planet. An estimated 10% of greenhouse gas emissions are caused by agriculture. Much research still needs to be done on energy, soil and water conservation measures that can help both the planet and farmers.

With an exponential population growth, we should also consider the sustainability of our diet, including what type of farming and what types of food are most sustainable. Additionally, we’ll also look at tech innovations for feeding a growing population.
