Global Issues Fund and the Future of Food

Science on a Sphere exhibit where visitors are learning about the earth.

Global Issues Fund

As UC Berkeley’s public science center, we seek to inspire people with cutting-edge research, exciting discoveries, and transformative innovations; engage people in learning, evidence-based thinking, scientific pursuits, and dialogue; and catalyze them to take actions in service of the greater good.

As part of our work to transform science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, we create experiences that demonstrate that we can explore, investigate, discover, and invent our way through challenges with global implications.  

One such challenge: feeding a hungry world. Gifts to this fund will support exhibits and programs at The Lawrence on the future of food, showcasing the many voices contributing to global food solutions, from farms, laboratories, and communities. Our exploration of the future of food will serve as a model for exhibitions yet to come that will explore other STEM issues with global implications.
