Side Events

Are you creating and shaping our future climate friendly global food systems? Do you wish to contribute to transforming the global food systems in the areas of climate friendly diets, food loss and food waste, the green transition of the global agricultural production or deforestation-free value chains?
 

We would like to invite you to host a virtual side event to this year’s World Food Summit between 25 April and 4 May 2022. The World Food Summit takes place on 5 and 6 May 2022 and is hosted by the Danish Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries. It is an annual accelerator of the actions necessary to transform food systems to become more sustainable, accountable, and equitable.

It is our aspiration that the World Food Summit Summit provides you with an opportunity to further your own efforts through the World Food Summit platform. Correspondingly, we see your possible contribution in form of a side event as a very relevant addition to our program.

One theme, four topics
This year, the theme of the Summit is “Transforming Global Food Systems to Combat Climate Change” with related side events staying within this frame and with a focus on one or more of the four topics: Climate friendly diets, food loss and food waste, green transition of the global agricultural production, and deforestation-free value chains.

 As a World Food Summit side event host, you will have the freedom to create and design the content of the side event. We will in turn provide the platform for the promotion of the event by creating visibility and by making your event accessible on the World Food Summit website as well as on our virtual platform.

As a stark reminder of the importance of ensuring robust global food systems, this year’s World Food Summit is set in the midst of Russia’s attack on Ukraine. This has in turn led to a growing food crisis by disrupting current supply chains, seriously affecting the cost of production and distribution of food around the globe and pressuring commodity markets that had already hit multiyear highs.

Bold steps are necessary. We hope you will join in and we look forward to hearing from you.
