April 28, 2010
Avogadro's Number, 605 S. Mason St. Fort Collins

There are many things we take for granted: food, clean water, shelter. But what happens when the global food crisis hits home? The School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University is presenting a panel discussion on just that – Global Food Security: What it is and how does it affect me? The discussion will take place at 5:00pm on Wednesday, April 28, at Avogadro’s Number in Fort Collins.

“Food security is one of the most critical pieces to the future sustainability of our world,” said Diana Wall, Director of the School of Global Environmental Sustainability. “Global food security is impacted by so many different elements – land use, soil biodiversity, population growth, climate change – and it is finally starting to get a much higher level of attention.”

Panel Members
The panel will feature CSU experts in different areas of food security:

•Dan Bush with the Department of Biology
•Jan Leach with the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management
•Doug Murray with the Department of Sociology
•Henry Thompson with the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture.

Moderated by Gene Kelly, SoGES Associate Director for Research and Development
