Weltweit knappe Ressourcen, höhe Bevölkerungszahlen und eine kollabierende Umwelt – was können und dürfen wir in Zukunft noch essen?
Das Problem, das sowohl die satten Industrienationen als auch die hungernden Entwicklungsländer betrifft, sind das Klima und dessen Schutz. Der Klimawandel drängt alle Erdbewohner dazu, dass Ernährung, dessen Produktion, vor allem dessen Verpackung und Entsorgung neu gedacht und umgesetzt werden müssen. Laut Umweltbundesamt produziert jeder Deutsche 220 Kilo Müll pro Jahr, davon landen 85 Kilo Lebensmittel im Abfall.
Was dürfen und können wir in Zukunft noch anbauen?
Wie schaffen wir genügend Nahrung, Verpackung, Transport und recyceln dieses alles?
Wie und was produzieren wir, damit die Ernährung gesund bleibt und dessen Produktion ebenfalls?
Wie schaffen wir nachhaltigen Anbau, gesunde Nahrung und vor allem die Versorgung der Weltbevölkerung?
Wir laden Sie herzlich ein, mit uns zu diskutieren!

For the first time, the subject area "Food and Agriculture" will be scientifically represented at the current Berlin Science Week by an event of the Global Food Summit 2020. You will find us in the Experimental Field.
Our contribution to Science Week is: "Foodtropolis. Urban. Circular. Food.
The new food cultivation methods are still based on linear thinking and linear production. What we need is networked thinking in cycles. Every by-product, every waste product is a new raw material for reuse. For the first time in history there is the possibility that an entire city will become climate-neutral - through closed production and waste cycles, through an "Urban Circular Food Economy".
We will present new ideas on food cycle management on a global and local level and want to discuss them with you. We have invited the following international speakers:
Prof. Christian Ulrichs, Head of the Department of Urban Ecophysiology, Vice Dean for Research of the Faculty of Life Sciences & Project Coordinator Cubes Circle at Humboldt University Berlin
Dr. Ousmane Badiane, Director for Africa at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), Washington
Dr. Ariane Krause, Leibniz Institute for Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ), Programme Area 4 HORTSYS "Horticultural Systems of the Future" and Research Group "Cultivation Systems - Regulated Environment".
Dr. Frank Thiemann, Head of Biomarker Discovery & Assay Development, Animal Nutrition and Innovation and Industrialization, EVONIK
Sebastian Cerone, Co-Founder of Less Industries

Algae are called the green gold of the future - because they are a valuable and sustainable raw material. They can be used in a variety of ways: They are used to produce biofuel, they are a novel food - both for humans and animals - can be used for cosmetics or as organic fertilizers. The Algae Tech Conference brings together key stakeholders from these fields to discuss technical and commercial issues. Of particular interest to us, of course, is the change in the food sector caused by algae.

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.
