Innovación para un mejor futuro alimentario

¿Cómo podemos alimentar de manera sostenible a una población mundial en crecimiento? ¿Cómo podemos reducir los niveles alarmantes de pérdida y desperdicio de alimentos? ¿Cómo podemos salvaguardar el medio ambiente para las generaciones futuras? ¿Todo mientras se enfrenta amenazas nuevas y más complejas, como la pandemia de COVID-19?

El objetivo del Laboratorio de Innovación del Foro Mundial de la Alimentación (WFF) es impulsar la innovación para el desarrollo sostenible en apoyo de la erradicación del hambre. Dirigido por la juventud global, involucra a los líderes del mañana, eleva a los innovadores y las soluciones innovadoras que ya están marcando la diferencia, y tiene como objetivo inspirar al mundo a enfrentar las amenazas que enfrentan nuestros sistemas agroalimentarios en la actualidad.

El laboratorio de innovación de WFF consiste en competencias prácticas para estudiantes y jóvenes profesionales, que incluyen desafíos de investigación, desafíos de inicio, campamentos y eventos de redes, así como clases magistrales con contenido inspirador y educativo de expertos de renombre y jóvenes líderes emergentes sobre cómo fomentar la innovación para un mejor futuro alimentario.

El WFF de este año se ha centrado en las áreas de enfoque del éxito de las dietas saludables y el abordaje de la crisis climática, con el lema “Dietas saludables. Planeta Saludable.”.El WFF ha reunido a innovadores para crear conciencia sobre la importancia de estos dos temas. El objetivo es co-identificar soluciones procesables listas para usar para minimizar y mitigar los impactos del cambio climático en nuestra vida, al mismo tiempo que aumenta el acceso global a alimentos sostenibles y saludables.
