Our food system is changing – can we change with it? The Global Food Security Symposium provides a platform for discussion about the US government and international community’s progress on addressing the problem of food insecurity. The symposium is annually convened by the Global Food and Agricultural Program of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

This years’ symposium covers topics such as Regenerative Agriculture, Food Diversity and Ocean Health. In addition, it will also touch upon the role of technologies such as AI and BigData and explore the concept Gender Inclusive Tech. Reputed speakers from international organizations, trade and industry, the public sector, and academia will lead you through this diverse and engaging day.

Join the Global Food Security Symposium to discover how innovation is changing the way consumers, in the US and globally, think about the food system. Learn about new technologies in the agricultural sector and discover how new breakthroughs can support a secure, healthy, and prosperous planet.
