World Food Convention 2018
How can we feed the world without destroying it?
By 2050 nine billion people will need to be nourished, in a preferably even, healthy and sustainable manner. The latter seems to be a mission impossible. The only conceivable solution to the food paradox of the 21st century is a radical change to the way we eat, produce food and govern global food systems.
The aim of the conference was to weigh the impact of consumer behaviour in developed countries on emerging and developing countries and to draw attention to sustainable management of natural resources and strategies to eradicate hunger, poverty and unequal distribution of opportunity.
More than 450 decision-makers from politics and diplomacy, industry and associations, as well as NGOs and start-ups discussed about the future of agriculture, human eating behaviour, food of the future and governmental interventions.
