On Friday 15 October 2021, Netherlands Food Partnership is hosting a unique and uplifting hybrid event for food professionals to celebrate World Food Day 2021.
The event will take a fresh look at three food system challenges: What does enabling healthy and sustainable food choices mean in an unequal food system? How can the potential of advanced digitalisation work be made to work for entrepreneurial food actors? How can a breakthrough be realized in achieving a living income for all?
Expect cutting-edge speakers, artistic inspiration and the opportunity to jointly reach fresh insights to contribute to food system transformation in the Global South.
