A number of global forces — climate change, population growth, food insecurity, and malnutrition — are giving rise to agri-food policy debates. In the centre of all of this lies one very important macronutrient: protein! This presentation reviews the contours of the global “protein problem” and discusses the three main responses to the challenge of sustainable protein.

This presentation will be given in English, followed by a bilingual question-and-answer period.

Ingenium members will receive a discount code to apply towards the admission fee! Watch for the discount code in the exclusive member newsletter this October.
