The logo for thePace Academy for Applied Environmental StudiesThe logo for the “Food You” campaign at Pace University aimed at raising student awareness of issues related to what we eat.

From noon to 2 p.m. today (Eastern time), and archived online here thereafter, you can watch and weigh in on an open-minded discussion of the intersection of biotechnology, the environment and the dinner plate at Pace University.

The event, “Feelings, Facts, Food and GMOs – A Fresh Look,”* is part of FoodYou, a .

Today’s panel consists of Shelley Boris, a chef committed to conscientious cuisine and author of “Fresh Cooking” (disclosure: she’s a friend); Jason J. Czarnezki a professor of environmental law at Pace Law School and co-author of “Food, Agriculture and Environmental Law“; Pamela Ronald, a plant geneticist and co-author of “Tomorrow’s Table“; and Nathanael Johnson, the Grist writer whose 2013 series ”Panic-Free GMOs” provided a deep and informative dive on genetics, agriculture and risk.

I’ll be moderating.

You can post questions or reactions on Twitter using the hashtag#pacefood. We look forward to hearing from you!
