The Future of Food and Agriculture – and the Politics Behind
Chat

Thursday, 31 August

First come first serve
Farmers only contribute to approx. 1.3 % of the European gross domestic product, but their efforts to feeding 
the world are priceless. With a global population hitting ten billion by 2050, food supply must more than double. 
However, we witness an unbalanced shift of priorities in politics. The Minister of Agriculture, Norbert Totschnig, 
and others discuss issues around consumer demand, food security and policy.
