We have teamed up with GlobalNet21 to bring three webinars relating to food scarcity. All webinars are open to the public and have special guests that will give expert opinions on aspects of food scarcity and sustainability.
The webinars have been produced in the run-up to our internet TV programme on food scarcity that will be aired later in the year. Details of the first two are below, with more information on the third to follow.
Making technology work for a sustainable world
Wednesday October 1 - 1900 hrs UK time
Practical Action join us to discuss their work alongside communities that aims to find practical solutions to the poverty they face. They see technology as a vital contributor to people’s livelihoods. Their definition of technology includes physical infrastructure, machinery and equipment, knowledge and skills and the capacity to organise and use all of these.
Food Scarcity: Population Matters
Wednesday October 15 - 1930 hrs UK time
Population Matters join us for this webinar to look at the question of population and discuss if the increasing population of our planet is the root of food scarcity. We'll discuss whether tackling that is more important than scientific and technological innovations required to feed an increasing population. Is slowing population growth one of the most cost-effective and reliable ways of easing pressure on our environment and securing a sustainable future for us all?
