Event description
We invite you to a panel discussion on transforming our food systems for the future – the future health of our people and our planet.

About this Event

Food systems should be economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. Economic sustainability allows food systems to be profitable and support livelihoods. Socially sustainable food systems deliver a multitude of benefits for society. Environmentally sustainable food systems do not negatively impact the environment.

Some say our food systems are at a breaking-point. With population growth and climate change, business-as-usual in food production and consumption is not an option. Our food systems need to be transformed – and rapidly.

We invite you to a panel discussion on transforming our food systems for the future – the future health of our people and our planet. The event will feature presentations from world-class speakers on technological and social issues for future-proofing our food, followed by a moderated discussion including questions from the audience.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Anne Mullen, the Chief Editor of Nature Food, a new online-only journal launching in January 2020. Nature Food will publish top-tier original research, reviews and comments on the theme of food, crossing the disciplines of food-related research in the natural, applied and social sciences.

Panelists include

• Prof. Dr. Barbara Amon, Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy, Potsdam

• Dr. Benjamin Bodirsky, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

• Prof. Dr. Mark Post, Maastricht University

Participants are invited to a reception afterwards. The event is free of charge but registration is required due to the limited number of available places.
