Greenfest by Hysan: Rethink Our Food Festival

Event description:

The GreenFest by Hysan is an annual event to engage and inspire our new generations to take positive action towards a more sustainable future. The event brings together young people and top change-makers from across Hong Kong to immerse themselves on a different sustainability-related topic each year. On it’s first edition, GreenFest will be themed around rethinking our food.

By 2050 we will have 9 billion people on Earth, three quarters of whom will live in cities. To feed all these mouths, ‘business-as-usual’ is no longer an option. We will need to fundamentally reconsider the way we grow, consume and even think about our food to ensure a secure and healthy future for all people and the entire planet.

 

This immersive, hands-on experience will bring together high-school students from across Hong Kong to explore the future of food. Through a series of workshops, demonstrations and talks, youth will dig into the issues surrounding our food system while exploring solutions and innovations to (re)connect with food and define the value, role and place of healthy and sustainable food in tomorrow’s urban societies.

The event will include a movie screening on 10 Nov evening which will be open to the public.
