The Future of Food Summit features the world’s leading organizations working to promote seed sovereignty and global seed conservation. You will learn how to select the best quality regionally adapted seeds, grow high-yielding crops, and preserve genetic diversity for more resilient food systems.
The biodiversity that underpins our food systems is disappearing – including all of the plants, animals, and microorganisms – putting the future of our food, livelihoods, health, and environment under severe threat. Today, 94% of our seed diversity has disappeared. Of the 6,000 plant species cultivated for food worldwide only nine account for the majority of total crop production, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.
Join us and be a part of the global efforts to steward and preserve seed biodiversity helping ensure the world’s collective food security and health.
