Knowledge for better food systems

Seminar: When wizards meet prophets, Wageningen, Netherlands

Wageningen University and Research will host a seminar discussing the implications for the food system of the book The Wizard and the Prophet by Charles C. Mann. The book explores the tensions between two approaches to food system sustainability: ‘wizards’ focus on technological solutions, while ‘prophets’ focus on reducing our consumption to protect the environment.

The seminar costs €250 to attend, but 15 free tickets are available for students (apply by 8 March for the free tickets). The seminar is on 29 March 2019. For more details, see here.
