Current and past IIASA staff and members of the IIASA network are invited to join us for an exclusive webinar featuring George Monbiot, a renowned British writer and environmental activist, as he engages in conversation with IIASA scientists on food systems.

Monbiot is a British writer known for his environmental and political activism. He writes a weekly column for The Guardian and is the author of several best-selling books. His most recent book, Regenesis Feeding the World Without Devouring the Planet, took him on a journey of reviewing thousands of research articles, reports, books, and other forms of scientific evidence, which he synthesized through discussions with farmers, consumers, and other stakeholders to identify systemic problems in food systems, its social and environmental impacts, and possible transformational solutions.

We are privileged to host Monbiot, who is also a guest senior research scholar in the IIASA Biodiversity, Ecology, and Conservation Research Group at IIASA, in a conversation chaired by IIASA Economic Frontiers Program Director, Michael Kuhn.

The event is open to all current and present IIASA staff and members of the broader IIASA network, and participants will have the opportunity to propose questions in the Q&A panel. This is a closed event which will require registration on IIASA Connect. Please log into your IIASA Connect profile to register.
