Global Case Competition

A virtual and truly global case competition to generate game changing solutions for the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021.

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 Global Management Consulting Firm, Kearney, aim to change that – with a little help from students capable of truly thinking outside the food-system box!

In March, students from all corners of the world will be provided with the chance to catalyze major shifts of global significance and challenge the status quo in the world’s food system. They will also compete for cash prizes ( $10,000 for 1st place).

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.
