Proponents of industrial agriculture plea for intensification and the use of genetically engineered crops to feed the growing population. Critics have more faith in small-scale, ecological cultivation, by and for the local population and adapted to local conditions. They believe too many problems are associated with GMOs and that intensive agriculture is too polluting and dependent on a few resources and big corporations. In this debate the two sides cross swords.

Speakers: Markus Arbenz (CEO IFOAM), Michael Kester (CEO Syngenta Netherlands), and Michael Antoniou (molecular geneticist, King’s College, London), Barbara van Dyck (Slow Science and Field Liberation Movement activist Belgium) and a representative of Wageningen University (t.b.c.).
