Future Food Expo

What's on your plate in 2050?

What will you be having for breakfast, lunch or dinner in 2050? Where will this food be sourced? And how will it be prepared? Edible insects? A hamburger made from in vitro meat? Or powders based on your DNA profile?

How do we feed the planet in 2050?

The Earth’s population is expected to grow to 9.8 billion in 2050, and 11.2 billion in 2100. That’s a lot of mouths to feed, especially when you consider the vast hunger issues the world faces today. From changing our diets to upgrading farming technologies, we need to rethink and design the way we produce, store, process, and consume our food.

Future food, today

Welcome to Future Food, an exhibition by Next Nature Network in collaboration with NEMO Science Museum. Curated by NNN fellow Chloé Rutzerveld and Tanja Koning, it involves a broad range of (inter)nationally renowned artists, designers and scientists, who all share their vision for tomorrow’s dinnerplate. The exhibition is divided in three scenarios; plant-based, animal-based and functional food; each section showcases a variety of potential future meals.
