Please join us for the seventh Solution-Driven Science Symposium.

As the University of Minnesota celebrates the 150th anniversary of our land-grant heritage, we recognize that cultures are re-asserting themselves as resources for improving the human condition. This seminar's dialogue will explore landscape health and healthy relationships to land, as seen from the knowledge frameworks of older cultures in Minnesota. Panelists and speakers will show how land is viewed through indigenous environmental knowledge systems and in African-American communities.

The “Solution-Driven Science” symposia highlight topics that are relevant to everyone’s future.  The symposia are supported by and reflect the strategic initiatives of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences.
