International Symposium: Sustainable food systems - Going beyond food security

7-8 February 2020
Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany

Organisers: Food Systems 2020, Justus Liebig University Giessen www.foodsystems2020.de

The symposium addresses the challenge of achieving sustainable food systems in a global context from different perspectives. As sustainability in the frame of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)-agenda excludes a monothematic approach, experts from the field of agronomy, agricultural economics, environmental and ecological sciences, nutritional and social sciences as well as health collaborate towards an inter- and transdisciplinary approach. This is not free from controversial debate.
