Farming, Food, and the Future: Changing the Shape of Agricultural Systems

Sponsored by Abdul Latif Jameel World Water and Food Security Lab and Pure Strategies

The 7th Annual MIT Sustainability Summit will focus on understanding—and offering solutions to—the complex problems facing local and global agriculture systems. This year’s Summit will tackle food and farming challenges through the lens of the “Circular Economy,” a systems-thinking approach that demonstrates that a flourishing, sustainable world is built on intentionally cycling resources between production and consumption: from farm to table and back again.

Speakers include:
Britt Lundgren ~ Director of Organic and Sustainable Agriculture, Stonyfield Farm
Fedele Bauccio ~ CEO, Bon Appetit Management Company and 2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year
Ray Offenheiser ~ President, Oxfam America
Ken Webster ~ Head of Innovation, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Our full agenda will be announced shortly on the Sustainability Summit website.

We encourage you to buy tickets early - we do have limited attendance capacity this year.
