The SFYN Food Academy: accelerating food transitions

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Our planet is facing huge challenges. Improvements to our food system won’t do the job anymore: we need to make a fundamental change.

But how do you change a system? In this talk, SFYN Academy-coördinator gives an introduction in transitions theory – the theory of fundamental, societal change, which helps us to understand our current challenges and accelerate the needed changes. Transitions theory is the foundation and core of the Dutch SFYN Academy. Marieke will explain how the Academy is designed, based on transitions theory, and how the Academy aims to contribute to a sustainable, fair and just food system.

Speaker: Marieke Creemers (The Netherlands)
