Radical innovation in a Post-Corona World: Why can’t we afford going back to the previous normal

June 9th, 2020, 10:30 – 11:45 (max.) JST

10:30-11:45 (max)

Three main elements of the webinar

1. The Pre-Corona state of things and 4Revolutions we need to survive
2. Corona’s crystal ball: experiencing another possible world
3. The emerging opportunities lying ahead: the new corporate responsibility

Webinar outline

Scientists have been highlighting for decades the imminent catastrophe that we are quickly diving into as a species if we don’t radically change the way we produce, consume, and, overall, the way we understand our human participation within our broader body-system: our planet home. The Covid-19 health crisis is having a deep impact in the global economy. If we decide to re-build the economic system simply going back to business as usual and re-boosting production and consumption as we know it, our survival will be even more threatened than before. Instead, if we are able to tap into the underlying opportunity that this crisis is carrying with it, the odds can change and we could start building a thrivable existence for us and the rest of participants of this Earth-system.

Sustainable food systems/redefining food security – why innovation isn’t enough

July 20th, 2020- 16:30-17:45 (max) JST

Puja Thiel
4revs Program Manager @NELIS Scientist-turned-sustainability advisor and foodie, Puja uses scientific reasoning to explore key sustainability issues around food, connecting technological solutions to cultural ones.

Three main elements of the webinar

1. The root of it - Key challenges in achieving a food-secure future
2. The shoot - Technological interventions vs. grassroot movements
3. The fruit - The future of sustainable food innovation

Webinar outline

Considering the resources, people, land, water and carbon emissions involved in producing food, sustainable food can be considered central to a sustainable future. Add to it the air travel and cheap labor our food is used to, and it becomes hard to imagine a way to make food truly sustainable. In this interactive webinar, we will get to know our food systems a little better - because connecting with a problem is the first step to finding great solutions.
