There are over one billion people living with chronic hunger and there are at least a billion of wealthy people overfed. Both of these situations have severe consequences for their health and wellbeing. How can we distribute food equally in order to feed everyone on this earth? With a world population estimated to grow to around 9 or 10 billion in 2050, this question becomes ever the more relevant. How can this World Food Problem be solved?
We have invited former Unilever Vice-President Hans Eenhoorn to talk about this subject and to discuss possible solutions. Mr Eenhoorn has also worked with the UN Millennium Taskforce on Hunger and is a member of the Club of Rome.
The lecture will be held on Thursday the 6th of February in the El Txoko (Oude Kijk in ‘t Jatstraat 47) and will start at 20:00. Entry is free.
