The Monterey Bay Aquarium Cooking For Solutions Sustainable Foods Institute annual conference, a two day event for the media to promote learning and discussion around the many issues that impact food and sustainability issues. This year’s talks and panel discussions brought together an eclectic mix of scientific experts, environmental journalists, top sustainability chefs, science authors, and others to discuss the state of the ocean’s health, climate change, aquaculture, sustainable fishing and agriculture practices, genetic engineering, the obesity epidemic, and much more.
The Sustainable Foods Institute is a part of the Cooking For Solutions Celebration, a public event designed to foster better awareness between the food we eat, and its effect upon the environment. It’s also an opportunity to sample fabulous sustainably produced foods, wines, and organic foods, watch cooking demonstrations, and walk among the many fish exhibits that make the aquarium a world-class ocean museum.
Stay tuned for the upcoming release of full length talks and panel discussions from the 2010 Sustainable Foods Institute conference.
