The creators of the award-winning documentary, They Say It Can't Be Done, in partnership with the Federalist Society's Regulatory Transparency Project, present It Can Be Done Live - a conversation between entrepreneurs, regulatory experts, and noted academics around creative and bipartisan solutions to global challenges to our shared future. The last of four panel events, It Can Be Done Live: The Future of Our Food, took place on October 1st, 2020.

Over the next 30 years, our global population is expected to grow by more than 2 billion people to 9 billion people inhabiting this planet. How will we feed a rapidly growing population with decreased land and water resources and increased attention to animal welfare and the environment? Is that even possible? The panelists will explore the potential of human ingenuity to solve these problems and the conditions necessary to make those solutions a reality. We say it can be done. 

The Future of Our Food Panelists:

  • Sonny Perdue, Secretary, U.S. Department of Agriculture
  • John Mackey, Co-Founder and CEO, Whole Foods Market
  • Josh Tetrick, Co-Founder and CEO, Eat JUST, Inc.
  • Moderator: Anastasia P. Boden, Attorney, Economic Liberty Project, Pacific Legal Foundation
