Wageningen University & Research (WUR) will host the international conference ‘Towards Zero Hunger: Partnerships for impact’ at Wageningen Campus on 30-31 August 2018. The conference objective is to build bridges between the global challenges and local solutions, and between the various stakeholders (policy, science, business, civil society) to work in new partnerships on achieving the Zero Hunger targets in 2030 (SDG2).
With sessions on evidence base for food & nutrition security, balancing synergy and trade-offs between SDGs, and policy-making & governance to achieve the SDGs, pathways for transformative change will be identified. The invited target groups for this conference include government, business, civil society and research, including young professionals and students.
Involving the next generations
Our next generations have a key role to play in solving the challenges of today and tomorrow. With their open-minded, bold and novel ideas, students and young professionals can challenge leaders in the industry, research and policy and societal organisations to think and act differently. Wageningen University & Research invites youngsters to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and calls them to come up with solutions.
