THE INNOVATION CHALLENGE | CLIMATE SMART INNOVATIONS FOR BETTER NUTRITION
We live on a HOT, HUNGRY, CROWDED planet. Climate change, rapid urbanization and a growing population affect food and nutrition security leaving millions malnourished. Government programs supporting nutrition are underfunded, aid initiatives have a limited reach and private sector does not currently do enough to aid proper nutrition. Business as usual is therefore not enough. We need a new generation of innovators who can solve one of humanity’s most pressing challenges: how can we nourish and sustain 9 billion people by 2050 without hurting our planet?
Sight and Life is inviting ideas from students, young professionals and entrepreneurs to provide a planet-friendly disruptive solution to free the world from malnutrition. We are looking for nutritional and environmental-friendly innovative solutions from a diverse category of products, technologies and services. These solutions could be innovations in products such as supplements, ingredients, livestock feed, packaging, diagnostics or services such as use of mobile technology, delivery platforms, behavior change communication, demand generation tactics and social business models.
