PlantEurope Network Invites to Panel Discussion “The Path to Sustainable Protein” – Exploring Innovative Plant-Based Protein Solutions


Sharing is caring!

The PlantEurope Network invites you to a compelling and insightful panel discussion focusing on plant-based and cultivated protein.

In an era where sustainability and environmental consciousness are paramount, this discussion aims to explore innovative solutions and initiatives shaping the future of protein production.

The event will bring together experts, innovators, and thought leaders from diverse fields to share their knowledge, experiences, and visions for a more sustainable plant-based future.

The event, titled “The Path to Sustainable Protein” will take place on November 29th from 4-6 pm CET.

You can register free of charge here:

Joining our facilitator Dr. Shireen Kassam will be Dr. Marco Springmann (Professor in Climate Change, Food Systems and Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), David Hunt (Research Support Manager at GFI Europe), Mathilde Alexandre (CellAg Project Coordinator at ProVeg International) and María Cermeño (Co-Founder and CSO of Poseidona).

Background and Aim of the Sustainable Protein Panel Discussion

The panel discussion takes place against the background of plant-based nutrition being considered one of the most important levers for mitigating the climate crisis, in addition to its health benefits.

The goal of this panel discussion is to give an overview on why it is important to reduce meat production and consumption. The organizers and speakers want to show possibilities in switching to plant-based proteins for health, economy, and climate protection. Alternative proteins are a valuable resource on the path to creating a future of food that is ensuring our individual health as well as the planet’s.

A secondary goal is to show the concrete path of pioneer company Poseidona, as well as the knowledge they gained during the implementation of their sustainable proteins from algal waste and invasive biomass. Through this solution-oriented focus on approaches, ideas for starting points and contacts to actors in Europe should be passed on to similar actors elsewhere.

The Future of Food – Is it plant-based Proteins?

Attendees will learn from the speakers how their respective research and projects came to be and what their conclusions can tell us about the future of food in relation to our consumption of plant-based and cellular protein.

Dr. Marco Springmann, who currently works as a Professor in Climate Change, Food Systems and Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine was part of the EAT-Lancet Commission on Food, Planet, Health and contributed to their report on the Planetary Health Diet. He will present the commission’s findings and explain why plant-based proteins offer a chance to switch from a food system reliant on animal agriculture to one that is sustainable and will keep not only the planet healthy, but also its population.

ProVeg International’s Mathilde Alexandre is set to highlight key insights from this year’s New Food Conference and give an exciting outlook on the future of cell-based protein.

David Hunt from Good Food Institute Europe will share information on alternative protein research and GFI’s training ecosystem, as well as the key technical challenges in the research field.

PlantEurope network

The PlantEurope Network connects actors from the field of plant-based nutrition across Europe to support and accelerate the transformation of the food system. To initiate a fruitful exchange of experience between the pioneers, initiatives, lighthouse projects, organizations, associations, start-ups, scientists, community caterers, restaurateurs etc. the PlantEurope team is conducting virtual panel discussions on various topics as part of the project. By connecting the actors and their success stories with a broad audience in different European countries, knowledge transfer and the exchange of experiences should be made possible within the framework of the panel discussions.

Recordings of past PlantEurope panel discussions on “Innovations in Plant-Based Communal Catering” and “Working Towards the Inclusion of a Plant-based Diet in Public Policy” can be found on their YouTube channel.
