Roundtable Discussions will use the following guide for the session:

  • 10:30 - 10:45 am  |  Welcome & Introductions
    After a few words from our technical host, the Roundtable Experts and Student Presenters will introduce themselves and get to know each other before starting the student presentations.
  • 10:45 am - 11:45 pm  |  Student Presentations
    Each student will have 3 minutes to present their paper, with 3 minutes of comments and questions about their presentation from the Experts and other students.
  • 11:45 - 12:30 pm  |  Group Discussion
    After all students have presented, students and experts will discuss broad themes that arose during the paper presentations. What similarities or differences exist in the countries discussed? Are there approaches proposed in one presentation that could work in a different context? The discussion topics are up to you!

 

12:40 - 1:40 pm CDT | Immersive Discussion Groups

Students have the choice of two different topics for their Immersive Discussion Group. Please choose one of the following, and join in to learn more and share your ideas!


"What if the world went vegetarian?"
 

"Are we running out of clean water?"

Can choosing a specific diet impact the way agriculture functions as we know it? What is the  cultural value and meaning of food in our lives? How do our food choices affect human health and nutrition, animal health, climate change, and environmental and agricultural systems?
 

Despite water covering 71% of the planet's surface, more than half the world's population endures extreme water scarcity for at least one month a year. Current estimates predict that by 2040, up to 20 more countries could be experiencing water shortages. These statistics raise a startling question: is the Earth running out of clean water?
