Not only in Europe but all over the world, people are creating new and more effective answers to the some of the biggest challenges of our time: how to cut our carbon footprint? How to tackle food waste? How to keep people healthy? How to live sustainably?
And we all know that action is urgently needed.
This year, teams at FoodHack will tackle real challenges submitted from Companies, NGOs, and Associations in Switzerland, and work hand in hand with them to prototype solutions.
The aim is to spark new solutions and support impact-driven initiatives in the area of sustainable food and responsible consumption, bringing value to the region and the Swiss ecosystem as a whole by positioning the country as a leading actor in this field.
— There will be a small commitment fee which is put back into food, drinks, prizes, and goodies for the event. You'll have 3 dinners, 2 lunches, 2 breakfasts and plenty of snacks to keep you fueled over the weekend. In true FoodHack style, we'll make sure it's delicious, sustainable and high quality!
