2020 inspired the launch of the Foundation’s Speaker Series, a virtual webinar platform. The Series is designed to engage college students, future voters, consumers, and community leaders in a dialogue on topics that are essential to the understanding of how we will feed a growing world population through modern agriculture.
In its premiere, this program reached thousands of people. We are eager to expand our Speaker Series to inform and enlighten the next generation of leaders on global food security solutions.
HOW IT WORKS
The Speaker Series features university professors, policymakers, and industry representatives in virtual panel discussions, accessible via Zoom and Facebook Live, revolving around a predominant agricultural theme.
Participants, who represent the next generation of problem solvers, can ask questions, gain career advice, and learn how to take an active role in improving food security. Panels are moderated by Roger Thurow, a senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and a scholar in residence at the Hunger Solutions Institute at Auburn University.
