EVENTS:

2019 Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium
"Pax Agricultura: Peace Through Agriculture"

The 2019 Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium will convene a fantastic array of international leaders, farmers, agribusiness executives, scientists, non-governmental organizations, and development experts to address the most critical issues facing global food security.

The theme for the 2019 Symposium, “Pax Agricultura: Peace Through Agriculture”, will address the increasingly intersectional issues of food security, conflict and development. With topics ranging from religion, diplomacy, climate, scientific innovation, and corporate leadership, this year’s Symposium will serve as an opportunity to take stock of the current state of global agriculture and food security.


In addition to the plenary symposium program of keynote speakers and conversation sessions, we are also pleased to offer media the opportunity to register for the the following events:

  • Reception for the Borlaug Field Award for Research and Application, Endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation (Oct 16, 5:30 pm) This event honors a scientist under the age of 40 who emulates Dr. Borlaug. More information is available here.This event is open to the media.

  • Global Youth Institute (Oct 18, at Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center): Each year, more than 200 exceptional high school students and collegiate delegates are selected from around the world to participate in the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute. At this inspiring event, young leaders present and discuss their solutions to global food security challenges with their peers and a panel of international experts, tour cutting-edge industrial and research facilities, and take part in discussions with global leaders in science, industry and policy. This event is open to the media.

Note on Laureate Award Ceremony Coverage:

  • Laureate Award Ceremony (Oct 17): The Laureate Award Ceremony has limited space, so will have limited media access. If you are interested in covering the event, please note your interest on your registration form. Media granted access will be notified the week of events and can pick up their credentials in the Press Room at the Marriott. The ceremony is also shown live on Iowa Public Television and via webcast.
