Three experienced professionals, including Kaitlin Cordes of Columbia University’s Center for Sustainable Investment, will discuss the arena of sustainable farming here both here in Hungary and abroad.
Ms. Cordes will be complemented by two respected Hungarian experts with hands-on experience in the field. We will probe the successes and challenges that sustainable farming is facing and the model upon which the greatest growth is envisioned.
We will also draw comparisons to trends in local farming across other countries and the prospects for sustainable agriculture on a global scale. The discussion will be opened up for a general Q & A for guests following the presentations.
