How to sustainably feed a world population of more then nine billion people with nutritious food?
One of the major challenges facing the global community,
is how to feed the growing population. UN has annonuced
17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years. Seafood is an important part of this solution.
The question we are asking us is: How can the seafood society work together on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in the coming 15 years.
This question frames the core challenge that the Sustainable Growth Summit aims to address. “Norwegian Seafood Innovations - Global Impacts” will engage renowned experts in their fields, from science, to business and politics on issues vital to the global sustainable agenda.
The Sustainable Growth Summit will contribute to new and elaborated insights and means for the development of management and governance practices for a more sustainable food future.
Join us at The Sustainable Growth Summit 2015 for unique insights on the future of food production with a global perspective!
