Seriously Sustainable Open Mic: The Future of Food

October 12, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm CEST

How do we feed the world in 2050? At the Open Mic, a group of entrepreneurs and innovators will discuss their work in the sustainable food sector. With diverse environmental, social, and economic issues surrounding agriculture, our panel will share their different solutions for the future of growing and eating.

Grodan is a world-wide leader in helping commercial soil-less growers of fruit, flowers, and vegetables and an expert in precision growing.

Hannes Van den Eeckhout is a coordinator of Boeren and Buren, an initiative to enable communities to create their own fair and local food systems by shortening supply chains and connecting farmers and neighbours.

Marjolein Shiamatey is a Senior Technologist at ReGen Villages, a company focused on integrating high-yield organic agriculture and technology at the neighbourhood level through off-grid capable design.

This event is part of Seriously Sustainable Week in conjunction with The Sustainability Consortium. It will be hosted by Emma Holmes of Wageningen Comedy Club.
