SXSL: Feeding the Future Panel

Posted By on October 5, 2016

South by South Lawn is a festival that was modeled on South by Southwest. SXSL hosted panel discussions throughout the day that explored how leaders in art, technology, food, innovation and social change are helping to move the country forward. Interactive booths will give attendees a hands-on opportunity to engage with and learn about new products and types of content that are transforming how we interact with our world.

We wanted to share this incredible panel on feeding the future. Discussions on sustainability, the new Farm Bill, vertical farms, climate change and other great topics.

Ballooning populations, evolving diets, and a changing climate present serious obstacles to our future food supply. This panel will introduce us to some of the people leading the charge to make food more accessible, sustainable, and healthy, as well as explore the role you can play  to best prepare for the future of food in your own community.
