As fall approaches, we’re thinking about spring! Next year’s annual Global Food Security Symposium will be held on March 29 and 30, in Washington, DC—so please save the date. From now until then, we’ll be developing our next major publication, which will focus on reinvigorating US and global commitments to food security, in light of the transitioning presidential administration. The case is stronger than ever that supporting actions to reduce hunger and poverty not only makes moral sense, but is central to US national security and economic interests.
Our 2017 symposium will showcase the best of business, social, and policy innovation early in the next administration. We’ll invite top visionaries from every sector to bring the productive dialogue and actions necessary to advance global food security.
We were delighted to have so many of you attend our 2016 symposium. The excellent feedback you provided has encouraged us to introduce some exciting new changes. On March 29, we will be adding pre-symposium curated side events, “Solution Sessions.” Following the symposium on March 30, we will host a networking reception. We have several other exciting changes in store, and I look forward to sharing these details in the coming months.
Thank you for your enduring support and involvement in making the symposium an engaged community that moves action forward.
Director, Global Food & Agriculture Program
