The 2020 MIT Sustainability Summit theme is Food for Thought: Leveraging Food for a Sustainable Future

MIT is hosting the twelfth annual Sustainability Summit on April 24, 2020. This year's theme is Food for Thought: Leveraging Food for a Sustainable Future. Speakers and panelists will explore how innovations are changing the way the world produces, stores, consumes and disposes of food. The focus will be on scalable solutions that promise to improve access to sustainable nutrition. 

Participants will have the opportunity to explore the food system as a whole and engage in discussions around food production, transportation, storage, consumption and disposal. Our goal is that attendees will leave with a better understanding of what criteria they should apply when evaluating innovative, food-based solutions for environmental, social, and economic sustainability.

The MIT Sustainability Summit is an annual student-led event. Now in its 12th year, the Summit features discussions with academia, industry leaders, and expert practitioners. The day's unique focus and depth of content has led to the Summit's growing prominence, and it routinely sells out its 350-seat capacity.
