Reinventing the Wheel: Paving The Way To A Circular Food System
Today’s industrialised food system is a major contributor to climate change, widespread environmental damage, and generates huge wastage. However, with an awakening consciousness around minimising one’s impact and environmental footprint, the concept of a circular economy has huge promise for both consumers and businesses alike to reverse and mitigate the downward spiral towards irreversible damage.
Join us for this first-of-its-kind session as we bring together experts and practitioners together under one roof with you to explore and investigate the challenges and solutions towards creating a more circular lifestyle around food. It will be a rare opportunity to meet practitioners across the different stages of the food cycle - from farming to retail, from F&B to composting - and to put together your collective passions, experience, ideas and creativity to derive actionable solutions towards a more circular way of life around food consumption.
It will be an evening of thoughts-exchange, insightful discussions and a chance for every participant, no matter what your background is, to contribute your ideas to make our lifestyle more sustainable.
