Topic: Food Ecosystems: the good, the bad and the ugly

In this 45-minute webinar, John will take you on a rooftop journey across our global food supply ecosystems. He will explain the complexities and challenges, outline the 5-pillars of the food system, and provide rationale for why we need to take a systems-view of food ecosystems. He will discuss key terms and definitions that are commonly misinterpreted or misunderstood. For those not familiar with modern technologies, he will describe the benefits and challenges of modern technologies such as blockchain, IoT, and AI.
