How will we eat in the future? How will our eating habits shape the planet? How can we feed the world without destroying fragile ecosystems? And is synthetically produced meat an alternative - or is only the algae burger left for us? These questions will be discussed at the festival - by leading scientists, artists, designers, chefs, experts and innovators.

City Changers, are you in? Yes we are!

And for that we fly to Oslo, the beautiful capital of the Kingdom of Norway. Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Head and Founder of the Global Food Summit, will speak at the conference: about climate change and its impact on agriculture and food production.

The consequences of climate change have a major impact on agriculture. New technologies must be used to find solutions quickly. CRISPR, for example, a biochemical process for altering genetic material, is a good way of doing this. This can make plants more resistant to drought and less susceptible to pests, which in turn can reduce the use of pesticides. 

But there is also a need to look for food production methods in the city. Their advantages: they are close to the consumer without leaving a large CO2 footprint. Long transport distances are eliminated and less space and water are used. This is demonstrated, for example, by the production of Clean Meat, meat from stem cells, or insect proteins that are processed into burgers. Production plants for this purpose require little more space than the size of a garage.

This is how Next Generation Food goes.
