Setting the Table for 10 Billion

The world population could reach close to 10 billion in just over 30 years. That’s a lot of mouths to feed. How we do it has broad social and policy implications. There’s not a single solution or silver bullet. Our panelists explore how we can feed the planet sustainably, the implications of changing diets, the role of gene editing, and more.

Join Dan Voytas, Director of the Center for Genome Engineering; Jason Hill, Associate Professor in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering; and Elizabeth Dunbar, Minnesota Public Radio Reporter, for an evening of curiosity-driven discussion.
