2021 Laureate Lounge


Do you want to speak to a World Food Prize Laureate and learn more about them and their work? 

Join us at the Laureate Lounge for a unique opportunity to network with 
these food heroes and ask them questions!

In the Laureate Lounge, Borlaug Dialogue and Global Youth Institute registrants can connect with World Food Prize Laureates in a one-on-one or small group networking session. 

Participants can sign up for a virtual 15-minute chat with a Laureate on a first-come, first-served basis. The virtual event will be hosted on Zoom.

Laureate Lounge Registration is open! 
Register for the Borlaug Dialogue or the Global Youth Institute to participate.
