On June 8, 2015, Jack Bobo, senior advisor on biotechnology and global food policy to the U.S. State Department, visited Lycée Technique Agricole in Ettelbruck, Luxembourg to speak to the students, teachers and the headmaster. Lycée Technique Agricole is the only high school in Luxembourg that offers programs in agriculture, horticulture, mechanics, and environmental science.

After a tour of the lycée’s facilities, including greenhouses and a mechanics workshop, Mr. Bobo spoke to about 40 students about global food policy. The presentation was followed by a Q&A with the students who posed meaningful questions regarding biotechnology and particularly, T-TIP and GMOs.
