How can we make sure every citizen has access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food? As part of PROBE, we'll be exploring how food-sharing can reduce both waste and hunger, how researchers are protecting ecosystems while improving crops, and why art and creativity are an essential part of those processes. 

Hosted by artist Zack Denfeld (The Center For Genomic Gastronomy) and featuring geographer Anna Davies, botanists Jane Stout and Brian Murphy, and chef Clare Anne O'Keefe, the event will look at initiatives to distribute surplus food in urban areas, research on insect pollination and microbes that improve plant health, and the role of art and culture in food systems. 

Location: Debating Chamber, GMB Building, Trinity College Dublin. 

Part of Probe: Research Uncovered at Trinity College Dublin. This European Researchers' Night project is funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
