Can science end starvation?

This blog is one of several published in real time during the live event “nutrition for growth; beating hunger through business and science”. The rest of the blogs can be found by clicking the links at the bottom of the page. Some of those organisations supporting this movement are include The IF campaignThe ONE campaign DFID

 

On Saturday the 8th June 2013, the government is hosting a “hunger summit”, ahead of a massive family rally in Hyde Park later in the day.

THE BIG IF will feature a host of household names and celebrities and aims to draw attention to world hunger ahead of the G8 summit

“Everyone at the Big IF London rally will help create a huge visual petition to demonstrate the scale of public support for the IF campaign. The petition will be made up of 250,000 spinning flowers, with a total of two million petals representing the two million children who die because of hunger each year – lives that can be saved if world leaders take action at the G8.”
