Meeru Dhalwala, LLD'16 - Future of Food Sources
What will we eat when we need to feed 11 billion people globally by 2100? With rapid population increase and climate change coupled with the focus on cash crops and loss of food diversity, is a fundamental shift in our diets and the way our food is supplied essential for us to be able to feed ourselves equitably worldwide? Hear from chef, restauranteur and climate change activist, Meeru Dhalwala, on her insights on these and other aspects of our future food sources.
