Youth and FoodTech

The United Nations will convene The Food Systems Summit that aim to awaken the world to the fact that we all must work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes and thinks about food. It is a summit for everyone everywhere – a people’s summit. It is also a solutions summit that will require everyone to take action to transform the world’s food systems. Guided by five Action Tracks, the Summit will bring together key players from the worlds of science, business, policy, healthcare and academia, as well as farmers, indigenous people, youth organizations, consumer groups, environmental activists, and other key stakeholders. Before, during and after the Summit, these actors will come together to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems.

So, how can young people around the World play a part in this global food systems event and how does technology play into the drive to find the most effective and inclusive solutions to leave no one hungry and bring true sustainability to our Global food system.

Our dialogue is with Shuman Liu the co-founder and Chief Culture Officer at Starfield, China’s leading plant-based meat company. Shuman has a BA in sociology and MPhil in anthropology. The mission of Starfield is using food technologies to benefit nature and human health.
