Summary

Overarching all our work in food systems, is the call from the UN Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to find shared solutions to the world’s urgent challenges. For the upcoming UN Food Systems Summit in 2021, five action tracks have been defined that drive food system transformation. Each track is designed to address synergies as well as possible trade-offs with other tracks, and to identify bold new actions, innovative solutions, and strategies that can deliver wide-reaching benefits across all of the SDGs.
This year, as the COVID-19 pandemic threatens the lives and livelihoods of people around the world, it also has exposed dangerous deficiencies in our food systems. Sharing research working towards sustainable food systems is as critical as ever.
These times have also made us all rethink how we share and interact. We are, therefore, excited to present food systems research at ETH Zurich in a different format, namely in two distinct online events. The first is a webinar with presentations and panel discussions focused on plant breeding for global food security. The second is a reimagining of our Networking Poster Session, providing young scientists a platform to share and connect with others in the food systems arena. Both events highlight how work at ETH Zurich contributes to food systems transformation.
This webinar, with presentations and panel discussion, focuses on plant breeding and the implications for global food security.
Presentations from World Food System Center Research Programs will be featured and give insight into the applications of plant breeding. The panel discussion, with its various perspectives, will further highlight how the research contributes to the future of plant breeding and its implications for global food security and a planetary health diet.
