"It has been a great experience for all of us! We made our best efforts to meet the expectations on the challenge (the cause is dear to all of us and should be a global worry) and focused our attentions in trying to solve the issue in a practical and realistic way, so it may be helpful to decision makers. Thank you to the organization and to all of those who motivated us to go beyond - without you the win would not have been possible."- Team Inbbictus

Unhealthy diets have become a primary source of poor health around the world, with glaring disparities between rich and poor. A shocking 690 million people are chronically hungry, while one-third of what we produce is never eaten. Our diets have also become the leading contributor to global environmental degradation. Redesigning the food is a unique and powerful opportunity to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and to involve people from around the globe in solving some of our greatest challenges.

Action Tracks for the UN Food Systems Summit, in cooperation with EAT, BI Norwegian Business School, and Kearney, aim to change that – with a little help from students capable of truly thinking outside the food-system box!

Participants will contribute to the development of a large scale, innovative solution that paves the way for a healthier and more sustainable food system. Action Tracks will incorporate the winning propositions into further discussions with member states and for the United Nations’ final action track submission.
