Driving Economic and Social Innovation with the Circular Food Economy

September 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

WCEF2021 Accelerator session – Four international practitioners of the circular food economy will discuss opportunities and learnings.

About this event

This event is an Accelerator session at the World Circular Economy Forum 2021 (www.WCEF2021.com)

The global food system has evolved tremendously over the last century. Never has food been more abundant for so many. However, the current linear food system is carbon intensive, responsible for between 20 and 35 per cent of global GHG emissions, and inefficient with about one-third of all food produced going to waste. At the same time over 25 per cent of the global population does not receive adequate nutrition.

There is a growing movement of governments at the local level pursuing circular economy strategies to drive social, economic, and environmental change across the food system.

In this panel discussion, four international practitioners of the circular food economy will discuss opportunities, barriers and synergies for driving local level food system transformations that support business and social innovation.
