The purpose of the AC21 was to provide information and advice to the Secretary of Agriculture on the broad array of issues related to the expanding dimensions and importance of agricultural biotechnology, including the long-term impacts of biotechnology on the U.S. food and agriculture system. New Harvest submitted a public comment for this meeting, which you can find here.

Audience Participation through Live Q&A at #NewHarvest2016

At our conference last week, we used Sli.do instead of a more traditional Q&A session after each panel. Our hope was to encourage a more active and engaging dialogue between the audience and panelists. 

It was a huge success.

The audience submitted questions via Sli.do on their phones/laptops, and the stream of questions was projected onto a screen for the speakers to see in real-time. The audience could upvote their favorite questions, which would then make their way to the top of the stream as they garnered more likes.
