The Food Systems:
A Malaysian Story
This webinar set the stage as part of the conference opening ceremony, with distinguished panelists discussing our food systems in local and global contexts. In addition, the webinar taught delegates about issues associated with food systems and the work done by various stakeholders to address these issues.
We Can Do This Together: Making food accessible for all, NGO and SE POV
In this session, we heard from those working in the frontline to make sure food is available and accessible to communities in need.
Panelists also discussed closing the loop and reducing the negative impacts of the food system on our natural environment.
Youth in Sustainable Food Production
This seminar featured practitioners in the industry on the multiple technologies, methods, and opportunities for youth involvement in sustainable food production. Panelists also answered the burning question of “How to make agriculture attractive to young people”?

IPG Kampus Temenggong Ibrahim
Interactive and insightful throughout the month-long program
Universiti Putra Malaysia
I thought it would only be a boring online program but there are fun games and activities conducted such as the virtual hunt and food drive (which i've never done before and is super duper fun!).
Speakers for the webinars were very nice and knew how to capture people's attention. The workshops really changed the way I think.
IPG Kampus Perempuan Melayu Melaka
I think I have a full view about all the food issues in Malaysia and that issues come up with a lot of ideas and suggestions for improvements.
