National Geographic Society and FAO are teaming up to raise public awareness of food and agriculture topics and the question of how to feed 9 billion people by 2050. The FAO and National Geographic Society are collaborating on an 8-month “Future of Food” series that will run in National Geographic magazine and online at http://food.nationalgeographic.com/

Some of the themes to be explored in the series are food and agricultural statistics and trends, feeding megacities in a world of changing demographics, reducing food loss and waste, the role of animal and insect protein in diets, and global forestry issues.
The official launch of our collaboration will be marked by a three-day event taking place on May 2-4, 2014 at National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, DC.

The launch will begin with an expert panel discussion on May 2nd from 2-4:30pm. The panel will address the issue of food security and sustainability. The speakers will be author Jonathan Foley, former Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman, chef José Andrés, photojournalist Robin Hammond, and others.

We would be pleased if you could join us. Please see the attached “Save the Date” document for details.
