Disruptive innovation, investments, regulation and urbanization characterize the radical change in food industry. To this end, we want to initiate a sociopolitical debate. 

In collaboration with the University of California, Berkeley ande the Wageningen University.

Program

From Speed-Evolution to Food-Revolution

As a result of increasing urbanization, an aging society and the implementation of sustainability ideas in all processes, the demands on our diet are radically changing.

Simultaneously, the high research investments for new food ideas alter the supply of food radically.

This global, socio-technological transformation process has to be accompanied by a public discourse in order to guarantee the acceptance and implementation of the research results. This is the only way to feed nine billion people sustainably in the future.

Scientists Seek Moratorium on Edits to Inheritable Human Genome

An international group of scientists meeting in Washington called on Thursday for what would, in effect, be a moratorium on making inheritable changes to the human genome. The group said it would be “irresponsible to proceed” until the risks could be better assessed and until there was “broad societal consensus about the appropriateness” of any proposed change.

We care

Build the future

Thinking of the future sustainably – ecologically, socially and economically. This is the responsibility of us all. The Global Food Summit also faces up to this responsibility. Thus, we support the "Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program" of the University of California, Berkeley.

In this program, committed mid-career professionals from all over the world who are working on sustainable projects in their countries are supported. Topics range from resource conservation to climate change, fighting poverty in relevant regions, improve global health care or initiate sustainable business models.

Over the last 16 years, 615 professionals from 110 countries have been trained in Berkeley by experts from UC Berkeley to develop joint strategies for achieving sustainability goals and implementing them in their home countries.

The special guest of this year’s Global Food Summit in Berlin will be Binta Iliyasu from North Nigeria, who is committed to the education and training of women and girls in Nigeria. She is the first of her region to study at a university and today, as a biochemist, she is a role model for many women, who are all too often denied access to education.

We support the participation of one scholarship holder.
