I just received a message from the Museum of Natural History inviting our group to attend the Future of Food talk on March 5 at a discounted ticket price. All the details are below. We won't have a formal meetup that evening, but please feel free to use the #foodtech hashtag to find each other, and use this page or any other relevant medium to discuss!
The American Museum of Natural History would like to invite your group to our event, the Future of Food!
What are the hidden forces that shape what we eat? How will biotechnology and trade change our food systems in the future? Are genetically modified foods the problem, the solution, or beside the point? Can we "patent" nature? What are the legal and ethical implications at play? Dispel common myths and discover the real science and issues beyond the headlines in this groundbreaking conversation with experts from diverse fields. Join plant geneticist Paul Gepts, economic journalist Fred Kaufman, ethicist Paul Root Wolpe, and intellectual property lawyer Rochelle Dreyfuss for an intellectual feast about the future of food.
This program is presented in conjunction with Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture, opening November 17 at the American Museum of Natural History.
We'd like to offer your group a discount on the regular ticket price, simply type in the discount code 'FOF' at checkout to receive $5 off the regular ticket price.
