Net Impact, in partnership with Monsanto, is launching an event series focused on moving our food systems toward a carbon neutral or carbon positive supply chain. Important themes for the event series include global food production, climate change, and the need to feed a growing world.

Groups of students and professionals are coming together around the world to share their ideas and generate potential solutions to address the inefficiencies in the food system. Net Impact helps fund each event and provides helpful toolkits and support. After each event, the chapter or group will select a top idea as their submission to the overall global food solutions competition.  

“The Food Solutions Challenge is a great opportunity for our network to reconcile how to feed a growing planet with fewer natural resources while still maintaining the economic viability of food production,” said Megan Shea, Client Programs Senior Manager at Net Impact. “Net Impact members are the leaders of tomorrow and their diverse perspectives ensure creative, interdisciplinary thinking about how to solve this issue.”

By the end of March, 50 chapters and groups will have hosted a global food solutions events and submitted a potential winning solution. Events are currently underway and 9 events have already been held, including Net Impact Chapters from University of California, Davis, Texas State University, and Duke University. The discussions from these events have yielded interesting solutions ranging from electronic recycling tools to carbon neutral certification programs to sustainable enterprises. 

This spring, the top 6 finalists will be announced and flown to a Net Impact Local Global Food Solutions Conference at the University of Wisconsin, Madison where they will present their potential solutions. They will be judged by a panel of experts and the grand prize winner will receive $5,000 for their chapter.

Silver jewellery is perfect on so many levels and whatever the occasion. There are pieces that make great gift ideas, whether it be a little something to say thank you or a statement piece for a special birthday, pieces for when you are having a bad day and just want to treat yourself to a little something and then not forgetting pieces for the kids and the guys. The great thing about silver jewellery is that it is so versatile and appeals to almost everybody. tradacasino

Silver has been used by ancient civilizations such as the ancient Anatolian people of Asia Minor, who mined silver from what is now known as Turkey. Silver was also used by the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia; now Southern Iraq, where a silver lyre was discovered in the Royal Cemetery at Ur. The ancient Egyptians valued silver because they considered it to be rare. They believed that the skin of the gods consisted of gold and their bones were made from silver. Parallel Profits Bonus
