What we have cooked up for you

Netherlands Food Partnership is hosting this creative and thought provoking event for food professionals to celebrate World Food Day 2022 on behalf of the Ministry Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality.

With COP27 just on the horizon where Food and Nutrition Security will be high on the agenda, this event will set out the key priorities and urgent action needed to address and mitigate the food and climate crises.



14:00-14:30 - Setting the scene: urgency and discomfort

There are multiple pathways towards more climate-resilient and sustainable food systems for a growing population within our planetary boundaries. World Food Day 2022 will be about exploring these pathways by zooming in and out of our food systems to define where priority should lie.

14:30-15:15 - Impact and solutions: the local perspective

Local and regional food systems are often presented as one of the pathways to increase the resilience of food systems and as a means to improve the environmental footprint of food systems. It is about re-establishing our relationship to our food and the environment in which it is produced.

15:15-16:00 - Shared responsibility: the global perspective

To solve the current food crisis and transition to a resilient, just and healthy food system for people and our planet we need to think big (at scale). What are big ideas that might seem unreachable but can inspire us to think big? What trade-offs do we have to consider when implementing these ideas? How can these big ideas connect to the local realities, are they really feasible?

16:00-16:45 - Priorities for COP27- A plate full of action

Diving into the NL policy priorities for COP27 from a local and global perspective in order to identify the required short term urgent actions, collaborations and policy coherence. What are the commitments of NFP/BZ/LNV in the coming 7 years in terms of these priorities. What are the priorities for youth regarding COP27. How do we bring about policy coherence.

17:00-18.30 - Networking Drinks
