Past Event

Sustainable meat made from plants? Join us virtually for a conversation with biochemist Dr. Pat Brown. As the founder and CEO of Impossible Foods, he is revolutionizing the food industry by providing consumers with the tasty burgers they crave, while preventing the environmental damage caused by animal agriculture. Learn how science can save our planet by reinventing meat.

This virtual event is free to the public, but registration is required.

This is a solvable problem, we have maybe 15 years to massively turn back the clock on climate change — so it’s an urgent problem, but don’t despair. Solve it.

Dr. Pat Brown, Ceo & Founder, Impossible Foods


An Impossible Story
Impossible Foods makes sustainable meat from plants. The company seeks to eliminate the need for animals as a food production technology and make the global food system sustainable. Animal agriculture occupies nearly half of the world’s land, is responsible for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and consumes 25% of the world’s fresh water. By creating meat from plants, Impossible Foods helps consumers enjoy their favorite foods without destroying the environment.
