GLF Bonn Digital Summit 2020: Food in the time of climate crisis

How to feed the world without eating the planet? The 2020 theme of GLF is “Food and Livelihoods.” Today, food production and agricultural systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a main driver of deforestation and the greatest threat to biodiversity. It’s time to transform this problem into an opportunity.

With climate change and global health pandemics creating a world of unknowns – we still have the power to plan for the future of food and livelihoods. Get an inside look at the latest sustainable food innovations. See how the world’s leading organizations use landscapes to solve today’s most pressing challenges. Experience the GLF Bonn Digital Summit online, from wherever you are. Join farmers, foodies, molecular gastronomist, plant pathologists and more and immerse yourself in a learning track designed to answer your specific questions.
