PLENARY II : PRODUCTION & CONSUMPTION

It is imperative that we act now to change the way we create, deliver and consume goods and services before we cause irreversible damage to our environment. But a mass mobilization of all actors — including citizens, communities, businesses, innovators, policymakers, researchers in all sectors and countries — is needed to transform existing production and consumption patterns. Which actors are trailblazers in the transition to a circular economy? How are companies accounting for climate, social and environmental impact in their business models? What can be done to inspire and empower more individuals to make the shift to more sustainable lifestyles before it is too late?

PLENARY I: FOOD

Environmental challenges, overpopulation and competition for natural resources are making it increasingly difficult to sustainably satisfy current, let alone future, demand for the basic human needs of food and water. How can we provide a growing population with healthy food produced in a way that does not harm the environment? How can different actors in the alimentary value chain work together to shift towards more sustainable practices?
