Subject: LAST CALL- Registration - Food Waste and Food Poverty Conference

Dear Colleague,

Food insecurity and hunger are growing problems in the world. The combined consequences of the financial crisis, market instability and increasing food prices severely aggravate the situation. The International Conference "Envisioning a Future without Food Waste and Food Poverty: Societal Challenges" has been designed as a multidisciplinary deliberation forum.

It aims to provide us with an opportunity to discuss significant challenges facing the global food system in the 21st Century. The University of the Basque country is hosting the Conference at its Paraninfo, the Bizkaia Aretoa (in front of the Iberdrola Tower and the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao City Center).
