Attending Pontifical Academy of Sciences Symposium at the Vatican

In November 2019, Ambassador Quinn participated in a symposium on food waste hosted by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican, hosted by Academy President Dr. Joachim Von Braun. Ambassador Quinn met with Dr. QU Dongyu, the new Director General of the U.N.-FAO, and with Selena Juul of Denmark, one of the most prominent European food waste advocates. The seminar was held in a Chamber dedicated to Pope John Paul II, who visited Iowa in October 1979. Ambassador Quinn noted in his remarks that he had been the security coordinator for that historic visit to Iowa.
