The global society is facing major challenges. The growing population of the planet must be fed in a
fair and sustainable manner. Producing enough food causes new, different problems which harm the
climate. Germany's leading capital newspaper “Der Tagesspiegel” invites decision-makers from
politics and diplomacy, industry and associations, NGOs and start-ups to come together to discuss
food security and technological achievements in the field of novel food and farming.
