Environmentalist Jonathan Foley presents NYU's Educating for Sustainability Lecture: "Can We Feed a Growing World and Still Sustain the Planet?"Increasing global population, incomes, dietary consumption and biofuel use are placing unprecedented demands on the world's agriculture and natural resources. To meet the world's future food security and sustainability needs, food production must grow substantially while, at the same time, agriculture's environmental footprint must shrink dramatically. In this presentation, Professor Foley discusses new solutions to this dilemma, showing that tremendous progress could be made to this vexing problem.Jonathan Foley is the director of the Institute on the Environment (IonE) at the University of the Minnesota, where he is a professor and McKnight Presidential Chair in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior. He also leads the IonE's Global Landscapes Initiative.The Educating for Sustainability series, which brings environmental scholars and leaders to NYU for public lectures, is cosponsored by the NYU Sustainability initative and the Environmental Studies program.
