About the

tff academy and
global summit

Thought For Food (TFF) is a global movement that brings together bold, unconventional thinkers and doers, who are dedicated to developing breakthrough solutions to one of the biggest questions facing our future:

how do we feed
9+ billion people
by 2050?

We love to experiment with our approach to keep things fresh and at the cutting edge. That’s why we’ve added the TFF Academy as the newest addition to our 2018 program, taking place alongside our TFF Summit.

23-26 July: TFF Academy

A new 4-day learning experience, specially-designed for our TFF Challenge Finalists and our global community of next generation changemakers. By taking part, you'll have the chance to brush up on your food and agriculture knowledge, sharpen your leadership skills and business acumen, dive into the latest technologies shaping the future, and polish your pitch techniques. You’ll absorb knowledge, make new friends - and of course have the time of your life.

27 July: TFF Summit

Our annual, action-and-inspiration-focused flagship event will feature keynotes, as well as the pitches from our TFF Challenge Finalists and awards for their game-changing ideas. The 1-day 2018 TFF Summit is open to youth, industry leaders, investors, policy makers, media and more.
