Thanks to all participants, the WFP Innovation Accelerator, and our sponsors — the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, the International Development Research Centre of Canada, and the Foundation for Food and Agricultural Research in the United States — for making the Future of Food & Agriculture Workshop in Munich, Germany this week a success!
Participants provided feedback on the three grand challenges XPRIZE has identified in The Future of Food Impact Roadmap:
- Consuming and Producing Healthier Food
- Creating Inclusive Food Supply Chains
- Managing Food Systems within Environmental Limits
We heard from a panel of agricultural entrepreneurs in Africa and India. Our Chief Impact Officer, @ZeniaTata, gave a presentation on moonshot thinking. And teams designed their own prizes, from a circular economy XPRIZE to a competition to control our craving for unhealthy food.
We will share contents and takeaways from these various activities in the online community in the days and weeks to come, giving both the workshop participants and experts who did not attend a chance to continue the discussion.
We are also working to convert the “Pathways to Impact” session, for which we did not have time, into an online activity. Stay tuned!
Please feel free to say hello in this thread in order to connect with the other people who attended, and don’t hesitate to message me if you have any questions about the community or need help.
