THRIVE: Food. Farming. Future.

Description

The world has seen a host of efforts to fight hunger. Thrive calls for a new, focused ambition and determination to the root causes of hunger and poverty.

Millions of people are locked in a vicious cycle of hunger and poverty. Poverty means parents can’t feed their families enough nutritious food, leaving children hungry and malnourished. Malnutrition leads to irreversible stunted development and shorter, less productive lives. Less productive lives means no escape from poverty. We have to break this cycle. Join our conversation to learn how we can stop malnutrition for 15 million children and end poverty for 50 million. Hear about the campaign mobilizing thousands to urge elected leaders around the world to support smart, sustainable agriculture investments.

This session will be an informal fireside chat, so we're also looking forward to hearing your opinions and experiences.
