Interview with Mr Ben Gerard, Student Ambassador at the USA Pavilion (16th October 2015)
1. What does EXPO mean for you?
Expo is a great opportunity to meet up with the World
population in order to focus on the essential sustainable issues about an equitable distribution of food in the future, with a view to achieving the target of 9 billions inhabitants on the Earth, in only 35 years. Hence the need to guarantee a free access
to food for everyone.
2. What attracted you most at EXPO?
Having the opportunity of taking part to EXPO and to get into contact with such an International context which forms the basis of my academic studies, is extremely important for me. Everyday, I can meet people coming from all
over the world and talk about sustainability on topics which are affecting all of us.
3. What does the food really mean for you?
The food is certainly an essential element for every single person living in this Planet; with a view to a rapid growth in the world’s population, immediate solutions
need to be found in order to guarantee food for everybody through environmental sustainability, the use of renewable resources and any other means which makes it possible to achieve this target.
