The Austin Forum on Technology and Society presents Technology to Grow More & Better Food
The population of the world has surpassed 7.5 billion and continues to climb, while weather & climate changes are creating more stress to agriculture, arable land is decreasing, and finite water supplies are under increasing strain. Agriculture enabled humanity to thrive thousands of years ago; can technology help us grow more food, more sustainably? Can it help us feed the growing world population, and even make it healthier?
Robyn Metcalfe and other leading food experts will share how several advances in food technology can help achieve all of the goals, and thus take care of the people and planet.
