How will we feed a growing population, in a changing climate, and an equitable and sustainable way? The SLU Summit for Food and the Environment will highlight ongoing research at SLU aimed at addressing the global challenge of balancing food security and ecosystem security. The summit will begin at 10:30 with opening remarks from Dr. Frances Pestello followed by a keynote presentation by Dr. Gary Nabhan, a leading thinker in sustainable food systems. After lunch, SLU faculty members representing diverse disciplines from across campus will share their current work as well as thoughts for future research directions. Refreshments will be presented by the SLU Department of Nutrition and Dietetics. Please join us for an interactive symposium around these important topics.
