06 Hunger – Values – Politics

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

European Forum Alpbach in cooperation with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna | Centre for Development Research
The reasons and consequences of world hunger are documented. However, there is little consensus about strategies to combat hunger and to secure access to quality food for all. Global players influence the world food system – their economic and political interests shape future food security strategies. The working group will discuss underlying values in political, economic and social domains. Given the mixed experiences of the past, what change in values is needed to achieve sustainable and equitable food systems in the future? How can a balance of interests along the lines of global inequalities be found?
