Feeding a growing global population is topic of library forum

With the global population expected to increase from 7 billion people today to 9 billion people by 2050, there is sure to be consequences on food production. Can the planet feed 9 billion people without ravaging the remaining natural ecosystems? Should it?

Join the conversation from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 during the next JMUse Cafe gathering in the third floor flex space of Rose Library.

The event, “Honey, we have 2 billion more for dinner: agriculture, hunger and global justice” will feature two speakers, Dr. Carole Nash, assistant professor of integrated science and technology, and Dr. Mary Handley, associate professor of integrated science and technology.

The JMU Libraries established JMuse Café in fall 2012 to provide an informal and lively forum for students, faculty, staff and the Harrisonburg community to explore together topics of public interest. The Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability collaborates with the libraries on programming.
