Cornell’s Food Systems & Global Change advances food system solutions for the health of people and the planet.
We are a transdisciplinary alliance tackling the environmental and nutritional challenges facing the ways people grow, eat, and share food everywhere. Centered at Cornell University and networked with local and global partners, we engage at the frontiers of knowledge to design and support actionable progress towards healthier diets from sustainable food systems.
Who we are
"We develop equitable, science-based integrated solutions to solve the grand transformational challenges of food systems. We are at the heart of national and international initiatives creating positive change for planet, people and health."
- Mario Herrero, Director of Food Systems & Global Change
What we do
In partnership with the Bezos Earth Fund, we are developing low-cost virtual livestock fencing that would benefit farmers and animals, improve public health in developing countries, and combat climate change.
Connecting knowledge and insight to drive forward positive change for a liveable world.
