Held annually, the Sustainable Food Lab’s Leadership Summit is an opportunity to explore new challenges and emerging issues in the food system as well as the leadership required to engage across organizations, sectors and regions.
The 2016 Food Lab Leadership Summit was held November 6-10 in Arusha, Tanzania.
At the Summit, we took a closer look into the overall agricultural development future in East Africa, delving together into scenarios about how our food system can evolve in the face of rapid population growth, climate change, and volatile global markets.
The Summit began with two-day Learning Journeys in the field. These journeys were opportunities for participants to learn together from a range of large and small farming systems and business leaders. The Food Lab has refined a learning journey methodology over the past dozen years, widely acclaimed and copied because participants consistently learn more together than would be possible individually.
