"Food and the Environment: The Costs, Benefits and Consequences of Modern Food Production" focused on the seismic changes wrought by science and technology in the production and preparation of America's food supply. Fifteen professional journalists were brought together with leading food chemists, environmental researchers, food producers and processors as well as food writers, food policy experts and educators. The seminar examined social and environmental consequences, and the economic and political impacts that have resulted from the advances in agricultural techniques and food technology production processes.
What fellows have to say about past seminars:
"This was one of the most valuable training sessions I've experienced. I'm taking back real work solutions to our newsroom."
