About the Farm of the Future

The Farm of the Future is a series of deep dialogues that will gather diverse kinds of thinkers and doers to work together on opportunities to advance sustainable agriculture involving animal production for viable and humane food systems. These dialogues are a joint project of the School of Veterinary Medicine and the Weitzman School of Design at Penn, organized by PennPraxis, which supports design action and thought leadership to advance inclusion, innovation, and impact in communities that design doesn’t serve. The symposium consists of seven 2-hour virtual sessions on Wednesday afternoons. Each session includes distilled presentations by dynamic thought leaders on the day’s topic, followed by a 45-minute live discussion with the speakers.
