2050 feeding the next two billion: full planet, empty plates


Mark Zawacki

In May 2018 Mark Zawacki, one of the world’s leading strategy experts will visit Australia to present the latest in a series of thought provoking Florence Guild events, ‘2050 Feeding the Next Two Billion: Full Planet, Empty Plates’.

With the world’s population predicted to leap to 9.8 billion by 2050 the global agriculture industry faces extreme challenges in the coming years.

“The world’s population is currently 7.6 billion inhabitants, which according to the WHO is expected to increase dramatically to approximately 9.8 billion inhabitants by 2050. That’s a lot of new mouths to feed and those hockey stick growth projections we all saw as kids are now actually happening.”, says Mark Zawacki.

In the course of the evening’s compelling talk, Mark promises to address the myriad of severe demands the world will face in feeding the next two billion people and present some emerging solutions with their respective advantages and disadvantages. Mark will also distinguish the worldwide leadership imperative to address such a truly global challenge.

Mark brings uniquely global knowledge and expertise to this field having completed years-long indepth research into the international agriculture sector and its capacity and readiness to feed the rapidly growing population.

Styled “a home for serious play,” Florence Guild is the future thinking event series of the Work Club. Work Club boasts three luxurious Australian locations: Melbourne’s Collins Street, Sydney’s Supreme Court and the newly opened Sydney Barangaroo.
