SystemShifters in Food

More information




Are you a leader who longs for a safe space and playground where crucial conversations and actions emerge that until now don’t take place? A place where dependencies are taken out of the equation and interdependencies are leveraged as a force for good. Leaders who want to initiate collective interventions that make transformations beyond imagination in the food system.
In a series of SystemShifters Labs, we create that space at EIT Food’s The ROOT. We will explore how we can trigger tipping points for systemic change. Together, we identify one transition in the food system we collectively want to shift. Our common ground: less ego, more eco. Yes, it starts with us, and it’s much bigger than us.


The main objectives of these sessions are:
• To convene a group of senior leaders from all corners of the food system who see the need for a system change
• To understand each other’s perspectives and to find a common language to talk about food system change
• To learn how to trigger tipping points within the food system
• To act collectively as senior leaders in the food system to make an epic shift happen
