Event Navigation

We can now imagine a future where humanity’s demands of the earth plateau or even decrease. But at that plateau there will be billions more people needing to be fed than exist today.

Sir Charles Godfray, ​ director of the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food, will argue that it is possible to feed this number of people without despoiling the environment, but only if we make hard decisions today.

​Following his prepared remarks, Chancellor Randy Woodson will then lead a discussion with Godfray.

​Presented by the Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center in collaboration with the Genetics and Genomic Initiative at NC State and the Society for Risk Analysis.
