Hackaton

    Hack the food system! How can we make sustainable and healthy food accessible for everyone?

    During this two-day event we will develop future-proof and creative solutions for the most pressing challenges in our food system. Together with students, entrepreneurs and change makers you will engage in discussions and creative brainstorming. And with the right input from experts, you will develop new business ideas that make a difference. 

    How can we make sustainable and healthy food accessible for everyone? 

    On the one hand, healthy and sustainable food is available, but usually more expensive. How can we provide sustainable, honest and healthy food and make sure it’s accessible and affordable for everyone? What are the different elements and business models that contribute to this?

    On the other hand, sustainable agricultural practices ask a lot from the people producing the food. Difficulties of finding the right market, getting the right price… are not new to farmers. How do we change this? Through new and unusual partnerships, innovative sustainable farming tools, more transparency,…? Let’s start hacking!
