Transforming Food

Sustainability Week 8–13 April 2019
Food is a necessity for survival. After a long trend of decreased world hunger, more people are living in food insecurity – at the same time, 1/3 of food is wasted in the global north. We want to spotlight how food production spans across the sustainability agenda and links to the other 16 goals.
