New Scientist Live’s Future of Food and Agriculture is an online day of inspiring talks across three stages. New Scientist organises the world’s biggest science festival, New Scientist Live, which attracts over 40,000 people.
This one-day event will feature the world’s leading scientists on the Main Stage. On the Field Stage we’ll find out how farmers are protecting the environment, and why robots and genetics are changing the face of agriculture. From lab-grown meat to sustainable diets, discover what’s coming to a plate near you on the Fork Stage.
Explore a wealth of incredible activities, quizzes, and films from Future Kitchen and Annual Food Agenda in online rooms hosted by New Scientist’s partners including EIT Food.
