Feeding humanity and preserving the biosphere

Espace Pitoëff - Grande Salle
Rue de Carouge 52, 1205 Geneva

Feeding 8 billion human beings without harming the planet is a challenge for civilisation. At a time when conventional agriculture is destroying ecosystems, how can we rethink our food system and adopt sustainable farming practices?

So-called conventional agriculture, based on monoculture and the intensive use of chemicals, is gradually destroying the ecosystems that are essential to food production, jeopardising our own existence and that of other species.

Rethinking the current system is imperative, but how? Does the solution lie in technological innovation, or will changes in eating habits be required? A reflection on agricultural policies that can preserve our planet and ensure food security.

Partnership – FIFDH and Helvetas encourage you to take action for food security:
How to act?

Co-presented with Helvetas and the Délégation Genève Ville Solidaire (DGVS), organized with the support of Leenards Foundation

Food, Inc. 2

In a second fast-paced opus, Food Inc. 2 continues its investigation into the workings of the global food system, particularly in America. With industrialisation, centralisation and illusion, mass distribution is stifling all competition. The film takes us deep into the market for meat substitutes, with start-ups offering innovative foods such as plant-based chicken wings and milk made without cows. To what extent do these new foods represent a revolution in the food system?
