In Conversation on Food Sustainability

  • - (AEST)
  • The University of Queensland
    Forgan Smith Building (1), Room E109, St Lucia QLD 4072, Australia

Consider this - what would it take to achieve a genuinely food-secure world - one without hunger or malnutrition, where everyone gets to consume the right quantity and quality of food to live a healthy, active, and productive life?

At Back to UQ this year, Science alum and Columbia University's Professor Glenn Denning will share insights from his new book Universal Food Security: How to End Hunger While Protecting the Planet with UQ expert Dr Severine van Bommel. They will discuss an end to malnutrition, even in the face of a changing climate and populations outpacing food supply.

Join us on 6 August at 11:00am. Register online.
