2022 Breakout Sessions

Insert picture here

Following on the success of four co-produced, deep-dive workshops at the 2021 International Borlaug Dialogue, the WFPF is expanding this offering to at least 10 breakout sessions in 2022. The name has changed, but the concept is the same! 

Breakout sessions are conceived of and led by interested organizations. These 60-minute sessions will appear on the main stage of the Borlaug Dialogue and will be co-produced with World Food Prize Foundation. There are no direct costs that the organizers will have to bear to host a breakout session at the Dialogue. The Foundation will make these available to both in-person and virtual participants. We are looking for a wide variety of  sessions that will focus on work relevant to this year’s theme, “Feeding a Fragile World.”

Applications are now open to develop a breakout session for the 2022 Borlaug Dialogue. The application process is rolling with a final deadline of August 1, 2022, and all applicants will be notified by August 8, 2022. Applications not selected will be automatically considered for a (paid) side event. There is no cost to host a breakout session at the Dialogue.

Breakout sessions are scheduled  from Tuesday, Oct. 18 - Thursday, Oct. 20, 2022 (times to be confirmed) and are main stage programming at the Dialogue. We may hold virtual breakout sessions from Oct. 12th - Oct. 14, but have yet to make a final determination.  The sessions are an hour long and will be conducted in-person, hybrid, and virtually. There is no limit to the number of applications (on differing topics) organizers can submit for breakout sessions at the 2022 Borlaug Dialogue.
