The Future Foods Exhibition, Science Museum, London,
December 2008 - December 2009
With support from the CGIAR, the British Science Museum in
London ran an exhibition entitled "Future Foods" that
explored the topic of genetic modification as a means to increase
food production to feed a growing global population.
The exhibition provided an explanation of what genetic
modification is, what the alternatives are and how agricultural
technologies can be harnessed to boost sustainable crop production.
It also addressed questions such as is genetically modified food a
good choice for our planet? do we need GM to increase food
production in the future, or are there other options? Visitors were
invited to join the GM debate through a voting system.
