Type of Dialogue
Please review the details below for registration information if available or contact the Convenor if you would like to attend.
The Wyss Academy for Nature has hubs in Central Europe, East Africa, South East Asia and South America. In the context of the UN Food Systems Summit 2021, the Wyss Academy offers an independent dialogue, which consists of the following steps:
- A cross-regional dialogue developing innovative ideas and prototype solutions,
- A synthesis report summarizing the insights gained, and
- A global dialogue offering a wider group of global stakeholder the opportunity to discuss the synthesis
- A Wyss Academy Declaration which will be submitted to the UN Food Systems Summit
During the cross-regional dialogue, the Wyss Academy for Nature will facilitate a direct contact between local agents (e.g. farmers, local politicians, sustainability activists) from the different hub regions. The local stakeholders will discuss the question: how can we produce food and preserve functioning ecosystems at the same time? Among the topics to be discussed are brazil nuts, wildlife corridors as well as water and pesticide saving methods. The local stakeholders share their regional challenges and solutions and aim to identify approaches that could work across regions. The cross-regional dialogue will take place on May 25, 2021.
Thereafter, a research team of the Wyss Academy for Nature will use the insights gained from the cross-regional dialogues and prepare a synthesis report.
The synthesis will be shared and discussed with a broad group of stakeholders including representatives of the four hubs of the Wyss Academy during the global dialogue on July 15.
The results of the whole process will be summarized in a Wyss Academy Declaration and submitted as formal feedback to the UN Food Systems Summit 2021.
