How Design Can Feed a Hungry Planet

Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Glass Corner, Parsons East Building 25 East 13th Street, Room E206, New York, NY 10003

Hungry? The UN predicts that by 2050 there will be more people on this planet than we can currently feed. Designers—well-versed in process-driven solutions, co-creation and new materials innovations—are uniquely positioned to revolutionize the way we produce, prepare and eat food. Join The School of Constructed Environments (SCE) and the editor of the food design site MOLD in a wide-ranging discussion on the future of food, touching on topics like product design for entomophogy, 3D food printing, and reducing food waste.

Featured Speakers:

Joey Zeledon, Smart Design Food Lab

Martelle Esposito, National WIC Association

Andy An, Mouth Arcade 

Christopher Washington, Radicle Farm Company

Hosted by:

LinYee Yuan, Editor, MOLD

Dan Michalik, Director of Product Design, SCE

Sponsored by The School of Constructed Environments at Parsons School of Design.
