Actions and Detail Panel
Changing Climate, Changing Appetites
Fri, February 17, 2017, 8:30 AM – 6:30 PM EST
ATTENTION: TICKETS FOR THIS CONFERENCE ARE ALMOST GONE.
BECAUSE SOME OF OUR TICKET-HOLDERS CAN'T STAY THE WHOLE DAY, THERE WILL LIKELY BE SOME SEATS AVAILABLE FOR EACH PANEL.
PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME TO THE WAITLIST FOR FULL-DAY TICKETS, AND, AS YOUR TIME PERMITS, COME ON OVER TO ROBERTSON AND PUT YOUR NAME ON THE WALK-IN LIST. ONCE WE HAVE SEATED ALL TICKETHOLDERS BEFORE THE START OF EACH PANEL, WE'LL SEAT ON A FIRST-SIGNED-UP, FIRST-SERVED BASIS.
WE ASK THAT WALK-IN ATTENDEES VACATE THEIR SEATS AFTER EACH PANEL UNTIL THOSE WHO HAVE PRE-REGISTERED AND ARRIVE LATE CAN BE SEATED.
Please register and join us at Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall for a day of debate and solutions-oriented discussions on how to deliciously nourish ourselves and the global population while protecting our Earth and its finite resources.
Panel discussions will explore behavioral science and how we can change our appetites, secrets of making these foods delicious and crave-worthy, the role of marketing and advertising in the effort and the power and politics of the food/ag sector.
The conference is of interest to all and open to all.
Please plan to stay with us through the day! There will be a delicious lunch for registered participants; sessions will build on each other. (Some ticket categories are sold out - if you missed out on whole-day tickets, please come on over anyway - we'll have a separate sign-in sheet in the lobby for walk-ins and you are welcome to take any available seat for a session or two, since some of our all-day ticket-holders can't stay the whole day.)
Tickets are free but registration is required for lunch.
Here's the link to short biographies and photos of the panelsts and moderators.
