The World will have 10 Billion Inhabitants by 2050. How can we feed this growing population, through systems that do not negatively impact climate, biodiversity and scarce natural resources? The current food systems has led to food insecurity, zoonotic diseases, pressure on rainforests, water scarcity, and climate crisis. The world needs a more sustainable food system; a radical rethink of legacy systems. Meat as the dominant source of protein, and the industrial system for meat production, is an ecological disaster happening in slow motion. Alternative 'Smart' protein sources are needed. 'A - Faster - Horse' model of thinking would not have moved the world from the horse-carriage to the automobile. Similarly, smart innovation is needed to replace conventional unsustainable animal agriculture, to provide abundant protein to the growing population, without destroying the planet.
Our Speaker is an expert in bringing together the science, the financing, the poilitics and the marketing of smart protein - aimed at building a world of abundance from the ground up. He will address questions about How to Feed the 10 Bilion without further degradation of the planet.
