This Friday, February 12th, Design Observer is producing a design conference on food in Los Angeles entitled TASTE. The conference will touch on a broad array of topics from agrarian economics to supply chain resources, dry farming, water harvesting, engineered waste, and more. Featured speakers from across the US and Europe include food-writer Mark Bittman and Lynda Deakin of IDEO.
6 of 25 of our very own Eat.Think.Design. students will be in attendance including a physician-epidemiologist from Nigeria, an MBA who studied superfood in Kenya, a clinical stem researcher with a recent Nature publication on particle imaging, an energy and environment public policy student, an urban planner focused on healthy communities, and a media savvy MPH-nutrition student.
