Around 815 million people are starving today in a world struggling to cope with rapidly rising populations and dwindling natural resources.

The goal to zero hunger can only be achieved with a diverse and impactful pipeline of innovation; while a willingness to take action across all levels of society, along with human compassion, will also be needed.

Organisations like the Bayer Foundations are key to supporting the scalable solutions that can deliver a world without hunger. And we are delighted to have the Bayer Foundations as sponsors for the Food for Thought category at this year’s Global Game Changers (GGC) event in Glasgow. The cross-sector awards, from Innovators Magazine and Newsquest Media, rewards impact towards the UN Global Goals. We believe this type of recognition is not only important in itself, but that it can help inspire others to develop new products and services that effectively tackle hunger.

Apply by 2 August for a chance to win the Food for Thought title, or any of the 10 awards up for grabs at the event in Glasgow’s iconic Grand Central Hotel.
