US, Charleston, SC- Climate change and shrinking arable land will make feeding the growing human population an increasing challenge in the years and decades to come. Join AmplifiedAg, Inc. CEO and founder, Don Taylor at the ‘Future of Food Under Climate Change’ virtual event as he discusses the increasing need for indoor farming and agriculture technologies in order to sustain safe food access for the planet’s population.

Hosted by the National Institute of Social Sciences on Thursday, April 29 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm, the virtual event is free and registration is available at https://www.socialsciencesinstitute.org.

 

As broad challenges face humanity ranging from the production of food, social equity in its distribution and use, and even what we define as food, Taylor and an expert group of panelists will bring diverse perspectives on how to address this pressing problem.

 

A software industry veteran for more than 30 years, Taylor passionately leads AmplifiedAg and Vertical Roots with expertise in engineering innovation to develop technology solutions for sustainable farming practices.
