On August 29, 2019, Futures Space presented a unique event on the topic of Futures of Food. In the betahaus Neukölln we took the participants on an exploration of the manifold futures and the scenarios how and what we will eat in the future. In innovative talks and workshops we dealt with nutrition systems; we discussed about food security, production, gastronomy and innovations and what this means for our health and well-being.
With changing environmental conditions, such as extreme weather conditions, scarcity of resources and population growth, the question arises where we will source our food in the future? Are we jumping from global to local? What are the alternatives to animal products? What role does technology play in food innovation? The focus on health & wellness and superfoods is changing our eating habits. What does personalized nutrition actually mean?
These questions and topics were the focus of the evening. We also looked at changes in human behaviour and consumption habits, as well as how companies and individuals deal with food waste. Another “Night of the Futures” on a megatrend that will have a lasting impact on our lives.
