Colloquium Goals:

“This one-day conference will bring together international leaders in their field with early-career researchers in Sweden working on global food security from both biophysical and socioeconomic perspectives. The keynote speaker will articulate the key challenges to global food security and highlight the latest trends and projections,as well as innovative solutions, while the early-career researchers will present empirical work addressing these challenges from global to local scales. The goal is to strengthen connections between academic researchers, government policymakers, and practitioners in working towards a shared agenda of a more sustainable and equitable global food system.”
