ON EARTH DAY 2011, Stanford experts from a range of disciplines discussed the interconnections and interactions among humanity's needs for and use of food, energy, water, and environment. Drawing on their own research, the speakers illustrated and evaluated some of the ways in which decisions in one resource area can lead to trade-offs or co-benefits in others. Symposium attendees participated in breakout sessions, led by Stanford students and faculty, on a range of challenges associated with sustainable food systems.
