There are many things we take for granted: food, clean water, shelter. But what happens when the global food crisis hits home?

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University  is presenting a panel discussion on just that - "Global Food Security - What it is and how does it affect me?"

The discussion will take place at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 28 at Avagadro's Number at 205 S. Mason St., Fort Collins.

Food security critical piece

“Food security is one of the most critical pieces to the future sustainability of our world,” said Diana Wall, Director of the School of Global Environmental Sustainability.

"Global food security is impacted by so many different elements – land use, soil biodiversity, population growth, climate change – and it is finally starting to get a much higher level of attention.”

  • Dan Bush with the Department of Biology
  • Jan Leach with the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management
