The World Frontiers Forum is a nonprofit that brings together pioneering artists and scientists to explore the sustainable future of the human condition. This year its focus is on food, healthcare, and learning. We held last year's gathering in Berlin. This year was to be held in New York on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations — now a virtual event due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Food insecurity, the topic of our first podcast, while not a new subject, has worsened everywhere. We are now in the middle of a pandemic, and questions around health and trust are central. This is the topic of our second podcast, which will be created by a compilation of interviews of experts in the field.

Finally, our third and last podcast will focus on culture and learning and the disruption that has come to over a billion students on the planet, the fears and challenges of going back to school — as well as that of cultural expression. Cultural expression and learning are inevitably interlinked, and each acts as a bridge to survival for those who are displaced.

Food Systems: Efforts of Regeneration

Food insecurity is the topic of our first one-hour World Frontiers Forum podcast. While this is not a new subject, it has alarmingly worsened everywhere. We interviewed international leaders to hear what they are doing today to find solutions.
