Geography 2050 is a strategic dialog that started nine years ago, in collaboration with Columbia University, about the vital trends that will reshape the geography of our planet in the coming decades. In 2023, the American Geographical Society (AGS) will be expanding this dialog to partner with University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL), which, like the city of St. Louis as a whole, is establishing critical leadership on a number of fronts in expanding opportunities for education and professional growth and in the fields of geospatial technology and development in the Midwest region.
Geography 2050 STL: Feeding Our Future Planet is a special edition of the Geography 2050 symposia series that focuses the dialog on issues directly affecting the nation’s heartland. The focus on food is a continuation of the main theme of the latest symposium held in New York City in November of 2022, and it’s wholly appropriate that AGS carries that discussion to the very part of the United States that is critical to feeding the planet. There’s simply no place in America better suited to looking at the intersection of geospatial technology and agriculture.
Connected to the day-long event on June 1 will be a workshop for teachers from Missouri and surrounding states on the morning of Friday, June 2.
We invite organizations, businesses, and even individuals to support this important initial step towards recognizing the power of geography and geospatial technology as we discuss the future of how to feed our planet.
An event by The American Geographical Society in cooperation with the University of Missouri-St. Louis
