The enthusiasm of generations to come will fuel the collaborations and innovations that will increase global food security, according to DuPont business president Paul Schickler in his remarks at the 2013 Chicago Council Global Food Security Symposium this morning.
Schickler’s quick-hitting presentation challenged the leaders in the room – young and old – to listen to the issues outlined at the Symposium and make a personal commitment to take action.
Student delegates at this year’s meeting expressed their commitment to feed a growing world in a video that premiered prior to Schickler’s talk.
