Plant Futures Initiative

The Plant Futures Initiative empowers college students and young professionals to become ethical leaders, systems thinkers, and enlightened eaters within the ever-changing food system. The program emerged as the first-ever university-level course focused on equipping the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs to face challenges such as climate change, public health, food insecurity, biodiversity, and food access.

2022 Plant Futures Symposium

The 2022 Plant Futures Symposium will focus on the urgent need to transition to a plant-centric food system with a specific focus on entrepreneurship and innovation. The interactive event is open to the public and is projected to reach thousands of attendees from around the globe, including professionals and hundreds of students from UC Berkeley, Harvard, Yale, and UCLA. Attendees will have access to speaker presentations, interactive discussions, question-and-answer sessions, cooking workshops, and networking opportunities.
