Invitation – Technology, Innovation & the End of Hunger

UN City Copenhagen, 16 April 2019 – 821 million people go to bed hungry every night and eradicating hunger has become one of the most important challenges of our time. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is working every day around the world to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. In a fast-moving world, the challenges posed by this mission are constantly changing, and so are the tools and approaches that can be used to overcome them.

Technology, Innovation & the End of Hunger is an immersive exhibition produced by WFP. Visitors are invited to experience how technology helps WFP know more, know better and serve better.

WFP’s Nordic Office invites you to experience the exhibition during the four days it is on display in UN City Copenhagen. Please find an overview of all events below:
