Event Details

By 2050 our planet will have around ten billion people to feed. With over 800 million of us already living in hunger, the world needs answers – and fast.

Emerging research has shown that seaweed could be the safe and sustainable solution to the world’s looming agricultural crisis – as well as addressing climate change, tackling poverty and contributing to a growing ocean economy. This often overlooked algae can contribute to better food sources, replace plastics and fertilisers, boost medical innovations, mitigate global warming, repair biodiversity and support economies in coastal communities.

Join internationally renowned sustainability expert Vincent Doumeizel, author of The Seaweed Revolution, as he takes us on an extraordinary journey of our history with seaweed and how the seaweed revolution might just be a new hope for tomorrow.
