The food system is broken.

One third of the world is worrying about when they will get their next meal. At the same time, one third of the world is overfed and over-nutrified. More people today are dying from overconsumption than from hunger. Food production is the single biggest negative impact that humans have on the planet. The food system is the biggest source of greenhouse gases and mass species extinction. The food system is broken, therefore we want to invite you to an evening where we will spark a discussion on what we can do in order to fix it. The time is now, and we cannot solve climate change if we don't solve the food system first.

If you believe there's a better way, join us for an evening and let's be the change the world needs.
