May 31st from 4.30 pm - 5.30 pm

Could the future city self-sustain its food production?

As a follow-up to our foodsecurity kick-off event at the Munich Security Conference, we would like to offer you to join our #foodsecurity expert talk monthly series.

In each session we will address the most acute challenges of global food security.

On Wednesday, May 31st 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝟰.𝟯𝟬 𝗽𝗺 – 𝟱.𝟯𝟬 𝗽𝗺, we continue with Stephan Becker-Sonnenschein, Founder of the Global Food Summit with focus on disruptive technologies which could secure our nutrition, minimizing the land use and shifting food production into our neighborhoods. These are methods of producing alternative proteins, precision agriculture, vertical farming, fermentation, genome editing or digitization that minimize land use and bring parts of food production to where the consumer is - in cities. Scaling these disruptive models will contribute to SDG 2030 and climate goals.

Please 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 for the webinar by sending an email to Priyanka Nayar ( We will send you the teams link afterwards.

We are looking forward to the exciting discussions with you!
