Are We Ready to End World Hunger?
Human beings have been on this planet for around 150,000 years. For the first 149,950, the baseline condition for our species has been poverty, hunger and desperation. Yet today, despite the headlines, we are closer than ever to ending global hunger for good. We just have one more hurdle to clear: a rise in man-made conflict. Proud member of the Zero Hunger generation, Dr. Chase Sova has made it his mission to help tackle one of the world’s greatest solvable problems. He has worked on agricultural and food systems in 15 developing countries across Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, always at the confluence of policy, politics and science. A Wisconsinite and a believer in the power of words and ideas, Chase knows that the fight for food security begins with recognizing this generation’s unique ability to end hunger for all time. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
