What brings you here?
“Projects concerning food systems and matters of food security tend to have a scope of just two or three years. But to make significant changes, we need a more ambitious vision that can work across multiple disciplines for maybe 50 years. I’m looking forward to considering a coherent, joined-up vision for long-term system change.”
“I’m looking to being inspired by a lot of perspectives, specifically those of farmers. I’m very concerned that as a society, we should be connected to the people who produce our food, and that we should listen to what they have to say. And I’m particularly looking forward to learning about the urban food environment in Ghana.”
“My particular area of interest is how blockchain can improve transparency in the global food system, and today represents a great networking opportunity in that regard. More broadly, I’m here to listen to the panelists’ diverse insights into how farmers, NGOs, governments and the private sector can collaborate in the interests of global food integrity.
“I’m keeping a totally open mind and hoping to hear about innovative ideas that might take us in unexpected directions, wherever they come from. Of course, today represents our first opportunity in a long time to gather in the same physical space and to share our insights. There’s a particular, very intuitive dynamic to real-life brainstorms.”
