Bethesda Green's Innovation Lab is proud to present its 2020 Summer Speaker Series. We're bringing together founders, industry experts, and policy makers for a series of conversations that will inspire, motivate, and educate all who attend.

Session #3 – Feeding 450M Americans by 2050
Tuesday, August 11th, 3-4:15pm ET

How do we prioritize sustainability while meeting the food demands of an ever-growing population? The stresses from climate change will force our agricultural system to become smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable. Join us as we discuss what’s working (and not) in the US agriculture system, the challenges of feeding urban and rural communities today and in the future, particularly in the mid-Atlantic region, and opportunities to build resiliency in the face of climate change.
