Will cities shape our perception of food and nature?

20.03. - 21.03.2019

Food for 9 billion people in 2050

20 March 2019 | Press Conference

How will the new methods of food production change our perception of food and natural cultivation? Is urban food really suitable for producing large quantities of food, including staple foods? Is the globally unique Circular Food approach, as presented by the Canadian city of Guelph, the solution? How can we even determine whether these methods are more sustainable than organic products? Or do we even have to weigh the different goals of the SDG 2030 against each other on the way to innovative production methods?

These are the topics of our press conference. We will also present a recent study by Systemiq, which was discussed at the World Economic Forum in Davos this year.

Our speakers:
Peter Verstrate, CEO Mosa Meat, Niederlande
Dr. Michael Binder, Director Sustainability Development EVONIK
Barbara Swartzentruber, Executive Director, Strategy Innovation and Intergovernmental Servs., City of Guelph, Canada 
Jaap Strengers, Associate Systemiq
