#SocEntChat on Creating Sustainable Solutions through Nutrients

On Wednesday, May 29th from 11:30am – 1pm EST, Join Ashoka Changemakers for a Twitter Discussion (#SocEntChat) on the power, the impact, and the future of Nutrients for All – and how we can go beyond “raising awareness” to create sustainable and innovative solutions for delivering nutrients.

We will discuss everything from the role of policy in building the right infrastructure to how food industry can incentivize and re-orient consumer demand. Is there such a thing as a “nutrients for all” company? Are there opportunities to use new and existing technologies to make Nutrients for All a global reality?

This is your chance to share your thoughts, ideas, challenges, and perspectives – and to connect with innovators, experts, and thought leaders in your sector and beyond. Key insights and learnings from the discussion will be highlighted at the Ashoka Globalizer Summit in Frankfurt, Germany on June 3-4 with a high profile group of Ashoka Fellows and executives in attendance.

How does a #SocEntChat work? 

A Twitter chat is a real-time discussion focused on a specific theme. It is designed to bring together various stakeholders (from social entrepreneurs and innovators, to funders and media) to share ideas, discuss best practices, identify the latest innovations, and pinpoint areas requiring more exploration. It is also a great way to connect with colleagues and supporters around the globe!
