WHY THERE IS A NEED FOR CHANGE
The next 15 years will be decisive for people and the planet. Setting the stage, this session will give a state of the union style address on health, environment and food security.
TRANSFORMATIVE ROLE OF CITIES
Cities are where the future happens first. More than half of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas and this is increasing. By 2030, China’s cities alone will be home to nearly one billion people. This trend is echoed globally from Nigeria to Indonesia. With megacities are on the rise. If managed well, the potential benefits of this urban growth are substantial. Due to their nature, cities (and local governments) have the ability to adapt faster and implement impactful solutions that can have global consequences.

BREAKING DOWN SILOS
Change starts with great ideas combined with action… this session rewards entrepreneurs or practitioners who are taking innovation around food challenges to the next level. The Nordic countries are in a privileged situation when it comes to antibiotic resistance. Such a situation has been achieved through clear policies and foreseeing professional practice. The Nordic countries were among the first to phase out the use of antibiotics as growth promoters in animal production – many years before the agreement on a EU level ban. However, it remains a complex global problem.

HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE FOOD SYSTEMS
Today, there is enough food for everyone on the planet, yet almost 800 million people go hungry. Over two billion people do not get sufficient vitamins and minerals in their diets (micronutrient deficiencies) and another two billion people are overweight or obese. We know that 30–50 percent of all food produced never reaches a human stomach. In 2050, we have to feed more than nine billion people on a warmer planet, with lower yields. Food production is the single biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. This session challenges participants to rethink the food systems from planet to plate – what actions are needed to build resilience into global food systems? How can multiple goals be met through common strategies?
