The Disruptive Innovation Festival is an online festival of ideas that asks the question: what if we could redesign everything? During the DIF, we’ll be asking our speakers to tell us what they think is in store for the future of the economy. While watching you can chip in with your thoughts and questions: sign up for a free My DIF account and ask your question through the discussion forum below the live stream!

Demand for agricultural products is estimated to increase around 50% by 2030 as the global population increases. How can we feed the world without compromising water resources, biodiversity and the capacity of these complex landscapes to provide other environmental services? 

Don't miss the University of São Paulo's Professor Weber Amaral talk live at the DIF! He will discuss the how and if circular and regenerative agriculture might help to reach these multiple targets.
