News headlines are all about urgent crises: COVID-19, Ukraine, natural disasters and many such. Behind these urgent crises, there are deeply profound issues: climate change, widespread biodiversity loss and the enormous demands placed on our food system. These underlying crises deserve as much attention. That's why you're invited to join Omnia's Opening Dialogue: ‘Navigating complex crises together’.

The Opening Dialogue will be streamed live.
When it comes to facing crises, there are no easy or universal solutions. Finding systemic solutions is inherently complex. Still, we have to relate to this complexity if we want to create a better future. A dialogue between scientists, students and partners of WUR can help to explore the many potential pathways for change, and the opportunities and tensions that may arise.
This first Wageningen Dialogue in Omnia puts our global food system centre-stage. What innovations and collaborations can help to transform the food system to facilitate its contribution to solving major global challenges? Where are the tensions and how can we strengthen, challenge and spark each other? To find systemic solutions you are all needed.
Several inspiring speakers will explore different perspectives and put forward key challenges. After that, it will be up to you: share your ‘seeds for change’ and discuss how they may interact with other seeds and perspectives. Speakers will be announced.
