This conference will bring together a wide range of leaders and interested citizens to discuss one of the most critical barriers currently preventing sustainably produced food from becoming mainstream – the distorted economics of our present food system.
Worldclass speakers will discuss the reasons why food from the most damaging production systems appears cheap when its real cost to the environment and public health is very high. They will also explore ways in which the food and agricultural economics can be made more honest, thus creating the conditions for a major global transition to more sustainable food production and consumption.
The conference will begin with an evening reception on Thursday 14th April, which will feature keynote addresses, local and artisan food, and a cultural program.
This will be followed by a full two days of plenary and two sets of 8 parallel sessions on Friday April 15th and Saturday April 16th.
Both the evening reception and conference will be held at the Fort Mason Center, San Francisco. Conference tickets will also include breakfast, lunch and refreshments. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know by contacting Ellie Athanasis.
On Sunday April 17th we will be hosting a variety of field trips to local food businesses and farms. You can find more information about these trips on our website.
