'The Future of Food and Challenges for Agriculture in the 21st Century: Debates about who, how and with what social, economic and ecological implications who will feed the world'

ISS is principal organizer of this international colloquium which will address various dimensions of food and delve into the realities and challenges to provide insights into the future.

This colloquium aims to be a space to discuss this complexity and bring together perspectives from different sectors (the peasantry, fishing, public institutions and research, etc.) to enrich the debate. The challenge of how to feed the world is a historical debate, but the novelty of this meeting is intended to go beyond the mere question whether it is possible or not.

There are 450 registered participants from 53 countries, 103 universities, and 110 paper presentations and 11 workshops. Speakers are among the world's leading academics and social movement activists. 

The colloquium takes place in Álava, Basque Country and will be in three languages - English, Spanish and Basque.
