The Rockefeller Foundation is inviting organizations, universities, institutions, companies, cooperatives, and partnerships from around the world to compete for the Food System Vision Prize. Participants will be asked to imagine an inspiring vision of the food system by 2050 that addresses six interconnected themes: the environment, diets, economics, culture, technology, and policy. The prize is $2 million, which will be distributed among 10 winners.
“Today’s food system is failing communities around the world, increasing diet-related disease and accelerating the effects of climate change,” said Dr. Rajiv J. Shah, president of The Rockefeller Foundation. “Yet, we have more knowledge, technology, social intelligence, and human capacity than ever before—all of which must be harnessed to transform our food system so that it nourishes all people, grows the global economy, and promotes a thriving environment.”
