‘Act to Inspire – Tracing Our Food’s Journey’ Event

‘Act to Inspire – Tracing Our Food’s Journey’ is a full-day event that will comprise of a food street featuring both Nordic as well as non-Nordic brands focused on sustainable food products and healthy lifestyle, as well as panel discussions by industry leaders, chefs, and academicians to raise awareness of food transparency, sustainability, and their relationship with Nordic health food productions and lifestyle.

Food in Nordic Countries

Food is a subject that connects us all. And Nordic countries, already known the world over for their creativity, sustainability, and innovation are on a mission to transform our food systems. They believe that this is only possible through collaboration and community participation, and moving beyond learning, to actually taking concrete actions.

In line with that, the aim of this day is to share creativity, knowledge, and solutions from the local community, inspire people, and lead them into action, starting with taking accountability for their own food consumption.

Topics discussed through the panel discussions include:

  • tracing our food’s journey from farm to table
  • organic farming in China, and the role of technology in solving global food security
  • food safety challenges

All the activities of the day are free and open to anyone with an interest in Nordic culture, a sustainable food system, and a healthy lifestyle. Registrations are required for the talks, due to limited space capacity.

Join us on 22 May to start collaborating towards a more responsible, sustainable food system!
