Bioethics Forum XX
Feelings, facts, food, and GMOs: Pace Academy invites you to take a fresh new look as a panel of environmental advocates, chefs, food journalists, and more discuss different aspects of the GMO debate on February 26.
Feelings, Facts, Food and GMOs–A Fresh Look
The mission of the FoodYou Campaign at Pace University is to objectively explore and address the tough questions surrounding today’s food system. The role of genetic engineering in agriculture is particularly contentious, with assertions about huge promise or perils often obscuring science.
On Wednesday, February 26, join Pace Academy in person or online for FoodYou Design: Bioethics Forum XX.
A FoodYou Design panel will aim to inform rather than inflame by bringing together a chef focused on conscious cuisine, a food journalist who spent six months investigating claims and counterclaims about GMOs, a law professor, and a plant geneticist. The discussion will be moderated by Pace Academy Senior Fellow Andrew Revkin, who has explored the future of food repeatedly on his New York Times blog, "Dot Earth".
The discussion will review the science on health and environmental questions, the legal issues related to food labeling and the realities of feeding not just a growing global population, but also one that is becoming more prosperous.
Can GMOs be a part of our vision for a sustainable, equitable, and healthy world?
