Choose your path!

Each day of the seminar, you have the opportunity to choose your path! Although we offer sessions all day long, you will NOT be on a computer from 9:00 A.M.. to 8:00 P.M. CDT. Mandatory meetings will take up 4-6 hours of your day. The rest of the time is still yours! Be sure to take note of which sessions are marked “mandatory/required” and which ones are “elective”. The elective sessions are where you can choose what you will get out of the seminar!

To help you set your agenda, we will provide a few suggestions for designing your path forward each day. We hope that you will find this helpful.

How do we address hunger most efficiently?

Discussion Question(s):

  1. What are specific tactics to address the problem of hunger?
  2. Does the answer lie on the supply side (new approaches to farming, as seen in the rise of urban agriculture), or on the distribution side (food banks and such programs as World Central Kitchen)?
  3. Is it a combination of both?

All delegates must participate in at least one discussion group per day.
