Convening Social Entrepreneurs in Sustainable Agriculture

Food systems are quickly changing – both in terms of production and consumption – but agriculture is still largely dominated by an old guard of researchers and policy makers. A team from the 2014 SLOW LIFE Symposium, led by Rikin Gandhi and David Monsma, aims to bring in the fresh voices of social entrepreneurs and innovators involved in agricultural and food system development, connecting them with one another and also giving them a platform to engage key influencers in the agricultural sector. The longer-term aim is to build a platform, like the World Food Prize, for the next generation of social entrepreneurs to influence the development of a sustainable agricultural sector.
