What is Tech's Role in a Sustainable Food System?


Our global food system is broken and inequitable. It's great at producing calories; there's enough food in the world right now to feed all 7 billion of us. But flaws in the system have resulted in skyrocketing hunger: 1 in 10 people goes to bed hungry every night. Nutritious food is increasingly inaccessible and unaffordable for the most vulnerable people on the planet because of conflict, extreme weather & inequality. The global food system wasn't built to withstand these stressors or serve the poorest of the poorHow do we build a more sustainable, climate-friendly, equitable food system? We believe innovation and technology have a critical role to play. Join our cross-sector panel of experts – a chef, humanitarian, policy expert and entrepreneur – for a peek into the future of food.
