Welcome to the second annual Global Food+ symposium, which took place at Tufts in downtown Boston on Friday February 16th from 12:30 to 4:30pm.
This page links to archive videos of the event, which brought together leading faculty members from Boston University, Harvard, MIT and Tufts to share their most important new work towards healthier and more sustainable food systems. Our speed talk format allowed participants to make new connections across Boston-area schools and types of research spanning a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives, from archaeology to theology.
The speaker list reflects the range and depth of recent discoveries about agriculture and the environment, food systems, health and well-being in the United States and worldwide. To facilitate communication across different scientific fields and institutions, each speaker was allotted 7 minutes to describe a specific finding in terms of its motivation, method and results. You can see how this went the previous year from the 2017 program and videos, and see activity on twitter using hashtag #GlobalFoodPlus.
