Every day, billions of people still cook over open fires using heavily-polluting fuels like coal, wood, and animal dung, causing dramatic impacts on health, climate, and women’s livelihoods. In addition, the global food system remains one of the most inefficient systems of modern times, wasting a third of the food produced and emitting massive amounts of greenhouse gases.

Join notable personalities to learn how these crises are impacting our lives and what’s being done to address them globally.
