The participants receive information about the scope and interdependent nature of the 17 sustainability goals and the status quo of the implementation process guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Together with experts, the participants explore a few selected SDGs in more detail in practical workshops and experience in case studies how to implement these aspects in specific fields of action.
The food4future coordination & management together with the coordination office of “Agricultural Systems of the Future” contributed to the Sustainable Development Academy with a workshop on “Food innovations for sustainable nutrition” that took place on July 29 to July 30. Here, the participants were first introduced to food4future's concept and its interdisciplinary research approaches. In the practical part of the workshop, the participants had the opportunity to develop ideas for innovative food products on the basis of the organisms that are studied within food4future using a Design Thinking approach.
In a brainstorming phase, the participants generated a wide range of innovative ideas for new food products for the different organisms we introduced. From the many possibilities, two ideas for food innovations were selected by the participants, for which business models were then developed in a next step.
