Southern Africa Food Lab’s System Shift Summit

Southern Africa Food Lab’s System Shift Summit

15 November 2016 - Johannesburg, South Africa

The South African food system is in crisis. What would it take for stakeholders from across the food system to shift the trajectory, with the goal meeting the existing and future challenges of feeding our nation? How do we build on current efforts, and what new opportunities are emerging?

The Southern Africa Food Lab is convening a leadership summit that will bring together a diverse group of leaders concerned with the failing food system in South Africa. At this summit, we will identify the potential levers for large-scale positive shifts, and identify opportunities for creative and collaborative responses.
