In this third installment of the James Beard Foundation Food Summit 2017: Consuming Power, James Beard Foundation Executive Vice President Mitchell Davis chats with Kate Cox (New Food Economy), Tamar Haspel (The Washington Post), and journalist Helen Rosner in a discussion titled Cultivating Consumers Into Citizens: Perspectives from the Media to examine how their roles in the media allow the consumer to further understand the complexities of the modern food world. Then we hear Caleb Harper (Open Agriculture Initiative) talk about  how the act of farming is truly “unnatural”, in addition to GMO manipulation and the ethics of new food and farming technologies and developments.


In the panel titled Science and Society, Caleb Harper joins Jennifer Kuzma, (Goodnight-NC GFK Foundation and NC State University), have a conversation about ethics, science, and food. Hear them describe how things get complicated when scientific innovations in food, technology, and farming have the potential to dramatically change the social, political and environmental landscapes of the modern world.
