New Highlights booklet and video capture excitement from conference

“Highlights From An International Conference” is a brand new interactive booklet that conveys the key themes that emerged from the conference. Active links to citations within the document allow you to easily explore featured speaker videos and publications that intrigue you.

A 5-minute Highlights video captures the most exciting and thought-provoking moments from the event.

Also available is a “mini-documentary” (5 min.) about bringing together agriculture, health, and nutrition.

We encourage you to share these new resources in order to continue communicating the conference themes and keep them at the center of the global agenda.
