Trend Seminar Finals of Spring2016: Fighting Hunger in the Digital Era

08. April 2016 | 5pm | @CDTM

The UN World Food Programme’s (WFP) Innovation Accelerator and CDTM cordially invite the general public to join us for an inspirational evening, as we address the world’s most pressing challenge: Zero Hunger by 2030.

After seven weeks of trend research, scenario development and ideation, the CDTM class of Spring 2016 will present their bright, bold ideas on how digital technology can make sure hunger is eliminated in our lifetimes. For the first time in CDTM Trend Seminar history, the ideation phase also included an open ideation challenge – with over 100 contributors from across the globe.

CDTM is proud to support WFP identify innovative new solutions and trends in digital technology that can help realise our Zero Hunger vision.

The UN World Food Programme’s Innovation Accelerator was established in 2015 to support the identification and scale up of innovative solutions for a Zero Hunger world. The Accelerator is based in Munich, Germany and can be contacted via global.innovation@wfp.org

Please register via Facebook, if you would like to attend the event. For all people, who are not in Munich, there will also be a livestream during the evening.
