The orga­niz­ers said the sym­po­sium would bring together aca­d­e­mics and indus­try play­ers involved in research and edu­ca­tion.

They aim to improve the syn­ergy between sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and cul­ture to address cli­mate change and envi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion. There will also be dis­cus­sions about olive oil busi­ness, pol­icy and mar­ket­ing.

Speakers and events will cover a range of sub­jects, includ­ing agron­omy, chem­istry, eco­nom­ics, gas­tron­omy, nutri­tion, pol­i­tics and well­ness.

The last cou­ple of years have made it clear, more than ever before, that our efforts toward improv­ing human and plan­e­tary health should be mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary and col­lab­o­ra­tive,” said Tassos C. Kyriakides, the co-chair of the orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee from the Yale School of Public Health.
