As the world population is set to approach 10 billion by 2050, humanity reckons with an agricultural infrastructure that is not only insufficient—but also wasteful, polluting, and prone to drought and famine. Join us as we explore the inevitable assimilation of two worlds through aspiration, investigation and execution: from forward-thinking greenhouses in Ohio to sky-scraper farms in the UK.
This provocative session will feature, Dickson Despommier, founding father of Vertical Farming, and panelists from the urban farm movement and design community as we unpack this issue of global consequence.
A happy hour will conclude our event, offering guests an opportunity to to continue a multidisciplinary conversation on global food security.
This event is free and open to everyone.
