"Penn hallmarks, integrating knowledge and working locally to globally, are clearly evident in this important conference," said Amy Gutmann, President of the University of Pennsylvania. "In addressing the looming, immensely complex 21st century challenge of providing healthy, affordable food to 9 billion people by 2050, the conference brings together a multi-disciplinary group of experts - scholars, public and private decision-makers, students, activists and the interested public - from all corners of the world."
Feeding Cities spans three days and will incorporate focused breakout sessions designed to facilitate discussion on implementable and reasonable solutions to one of our modern age's fundamental challenges: how to provide a sustainable, nutritious, and affordable diet to the world's urban population. Distinguished speakers and attendees across the public, private, and non-profit sectors will assemble to engage in dialogue focused on achieving the answer to this question.
