Imagine the Food of Tomorrow
14:00 - 14:30
DeLaMar Theater (D5 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
By mid-century, the world population will surpass 9 billion people, meaning higher demand for available food, water, arable land and environmental impacts. Food safety issues, nutrition deficiencies, post-harvest losses, regulation inconsistencies and consumer attitudes are all serious challenges which must be met in maintaining food security and sustainability. Possible ways forward include advancements in food processing technologies, nanotechnology, innovative food formulations and the use of genomic approaches manifested in examples such as alternative protein sources, insect flour, nutrigenomics, 3D food printing, biomimicry, food engineering and merging technology.
Chloé Rutzerveld will takes us on a journey in the future of food. Chloe is a critical food designer who explores and challenges food production and consumption. Can we design a healthier and sustainable way of producing food in combination with technology?
In this program she inspires us to explore the unexpected places innovation will take us if we combine innovation with the reflective nature of art. She will asks each of us to think beyond what we know today, to imagine what might be tomorrow.
This is an keynote with a short Q&A after Chloé's presentation.
