IMPACT HUB NETWORK EVENTS
Food Ecosystem Day
December 8 @ 05:45 - 11:00 CST
We would like to welcome you during our Food ecosystem day where we connect and strengthen relationships between impact entrepreneurs, investors, corporates, government, and other organisations. Within our Food Ecosystem we have four themes, each accompanied by a goal we work towards. During this Ecosystem day we will share the latest insides and developments, but also the challenges and opportunities that still lie ahead of us on our journey to reach these goals. Our Food Ecosystem Day will take place on Thursday 8 December.
The four themes of the Food Ecosystem are:
1. Circular design, no-waste: (50% circular in 2030 and 100% in 2050)
2. Plant based food (50% plant-based protein in 2025)
3. Biodiversity / regeneration / local en fair chains (25% local in 2030)
4. Access to healthy and affordable food
