2021 ASA-CSSA-SSSA International Annual Meeting, Salt Lake City, UT, USA
"2021 ANNUAL MEETING THEME: “A CREATIVE ECONOMY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT”
The UN has declared 2021 as the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. This theme ties to research, education, outreach, and food production undertaken by the members of our three professional societies. This work has empowered a proliferation of new tools, data, and innovations that can increase the amount of safe, nutritious food grown while increasing numerous positive impacts on soils and the environment. These tools will allow production increases without further damage to natural ecosystems while providing both large and small-holder farmers with new options to reduce the problematic manual labor associated with farming and that make farming a more flexible, stable enterprise.
This theme encourages new ideas for food, feed, fuel and fiber production, and natural resources protection. We particularly encourage radical ideas and proposed paradigm changes that may make leaps in our progress towards a sustainable world agriculture economy. The theme will prompt out-of-the-box solutions to the agriculture sector's problems as we continue to provide sufficient, safe, and nutritious food to a growing global population while faced with mounting environmental and resource constraints.
Come join us to help turn the strategies into actions and the actions into impacts."
