Transitions do not happen overnight. Many large-scale transitions can even take decades. Such long timelines often discourage individual stakeholders or organisations from setting up their own initiatives. Our experts in ecosystem innovation identify promising opportunities at an early stage and attract, engage and mobilise front runners, including unusual suspects. Together we co-create ideas to drive a more resource-efficient, healthy and sustainable food system.

We like to inspire everyone who wants to participate in the transition of the food system with a series of blogs, podcasts and interviews.
