2015 CAT Food Politics: The Iowa State Fair and The World Food Prize
August 12-16, 2015

“Eradication of world hunger” is the first of the United Nations Millennial Development Goals. On location in Des Moines and Ames, Iowa participants will start to understand the intricate pieces of this goal by investigating the multiple dimensions of crop and animal agriculture, including food production, research initiatives, and policy implications. The unique opportunity to observe all of these in action comes from spending the first day at the Iowa State Fair, arguably the largest state fair in the U.S., then moving to the World Food Prize headquarters where global food insecurity is a focused priority, and ending at the Aldo Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, where alternative models engage in food safety, security, and productivity.
