About The Event

Join us as we blaze the trail towards sustainable food systems and be a driving force in the journey from innovation to action.

In 2023, the global focus has intensified on the need for innovative solutions in food systems, as demonstrated by prominent international events like the World Economic Forum in Davos, AIM4Climate Summit in Washington DC, and others. These gatherings underscore the urgent call for transformative change in food production and consumption.

Amid this heightened awareness, the INNOV-EAT journey embarked on a transformative expedition during Climate Week in New York City. This symbolic journey unveiled groundbreaking innovations with the potential to reshape global food systems, moving from ideas to tangible pathways for sustainability, resilience, and equity. Now, the time has come to transition from ideation to implementation, exploring the profound question: What does it take?

This session aims to unravel these challenges, seek answers, and collaboratively usher in a new era of innovation, sustainability, and abundance in the global food landscape.
