IFE Grand Challenge Lecture Series: great minds, big ideas, endless possibilities

Several grand challenges confront humanity in the 21st century, from feeding the world’s booming population to managing scarce natural resources and reducing our carbon footprint. The Grand Challenge Lecture Series presented by the Institute for Future Environments (IFE) explores these and other challenges and the possible solutions to them.
