What does the future of our global food system look like?

How can we persevere our planet and feed nine billion people by 2050? What is the future of our global food system and what role does the consumer play? What does the future of agriculture look like? How can technology help to fuel change in the food market? By 2050 nine billion people will need to be nourished, in a preferably even, healthy and sustainable manner. The latter seems to be a mission impossible. The only conceivable solution to the food paradox of the 21st century is a radical change to the way we eat, produce food and govern global food systems - and these are the issues the World Food Convention 2019 aims to tackle.
