World Food Convention 2021
At the World Food Convention – “Science for the society – How to secure food in a sustainable way” latest presentations from leading experts await you. Find out who they are and follow their live discussions on June 24th from 2:00 pm CEST (+2UTC).
The global society is facing major challenges. The growing population of the planet must be fed in a fair and sustainable manner. Producing enough food causes new, different problems which harm the climate. On top of that, the COVID-19 pandemic endangers the security of food production and the stability of supply chains, threatening food safety.
Against this backdrop, scientific institutions as well as companies from both the old and the new economy are searching for ways to cope with these challenges. At the 5th World Food Convention, the leading minds from science, politics and the economy will discuss how food security can be ensured all over the planet without further exacerbating climate change and to find strategies to address these issues with regard to possible future pandemics.
The focus will not only be on the technological and technical aspects of food production and distribution but also on related ethical questions and political considerations. Topics will include genome editing, carbon farming, the farm to fork strategy, food security and innovations in food.
