To feed more than 10 billion people within our planetary boundaries by 2050, while ending hunger and tackling unhealthy diets, we will have to fundamentally change the food system, requiring co-ordinated and large-scale action by all stakeholders across multiple axes. The virtual pre-event Bold Actions for Food as a Force for Good on November 23-24, 2020 will be a key milestone leading to the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021. This event is open for participation, sign up for free and register here.
Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy is co-leading this event with the World Economic Forum, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), World Farmers Organization, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Unilever, PepsiCo, Royal DSM, Rabobank, One Young World, Wageningen University & Research, and the Government of The Netherlands.
Friedman School Dean Dariush Mozaffarian co-chairs the event, and Professor Patrick Webb will be speaking.
