Together towards a sustainable future
For a sustainable future with enough healthy food for all, our current food systems have to change. Initiatives from Switzerland and Malawi are encouraging: together we can make the change to ecological agriculture with agroecology and to a food policy that is fair for all – from farm to fork.
Changing food systems! How can we do it?
In his talk, Frank Eyhorn, Executive Director of Biovision, looks at how we can meet food system challenges and become part of the solution.
Food Movements in East Africa
East Africa is on the move: People and initiatives are campaigning for agroecological change. Like Esther Lupafya and Mwapi Mkandawire in Malawi, whose initiative has strengthened local communities, promoted organic farming and improved the food situation of thousands of people.

How does a Citizens Assembly work?
What should a food policy for Switzerland look like that makes healthy, sustainable, animal-friendly and fairly produced food available to everyone by 2030? Over a period of five months, around 80 people, randomly selected by a market research institute, dealt intensively with the complex challenges of our food system and together developed viable solutions.
Solutions for the future of food
Project coordinator Gabriel Pelloquin talks about a Biovision project that aims to make Swiss food policy more sustainable and resilient. Participants of the Citizens’ Assembly for Food Policy talk about motivation, experiences and hopes for the food of the future. Green politician and organic farmer Maya Graf looks at the role of politics and gives an outlook on how the recommendations of the Citizens’ Assembly can be implemented.
