World Food Convention 2018

On June 26, Der Tagesspiegel is hosting the World Food Convention 2018 in Berlin. As networking partner we invite you to participate at the event and discuss with 500 decision makers from politics, industry, diplomacy, NGOs as well as science and academia the most burning issues of global food production and distribution.

How can we feed the world without destroying it?

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.

The aim of the conference is to weight the impact of consumer behaviour in developed countries on emerging and developing countries and to draw attention to sustainable management of natural resources and strategies to eradicate hunger, poverty and unequal distribution of opportunity.

Keynote speeches will be held by Julia Klöckner, Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture and Dr Gerd Müller, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development.
