Final Event: Innovative solutions for a ‘Nutrients for All’ world

For the last nine months, Ashoka’s Changemakers and the Nutrients for All programs have been searching for innovations that spark and spread cross sector solutions to the connected epidemics of malnutrition, chronic illnesses, and destruction of our soils. From revolutionizing local waste systems, to empowering farmers to nourish their soils and food, to improving the nourishment of mothers and children, these innovations represent critical elements of the future we are pursuing.

Nutrients for All represents the ability of people, plants, animals and land to generate, access and absorb the full spectrum of nourishment that our shared evolution requires for their vitality, what they need to achieve their full capacity. The Nutrients for All vision connects land, farming, food and human wellness into a new value chain, full of opportunities as well as solutions to these global problems.

It is time to announce the winners of the Nutrients for All competition and commend the finalists, entrants, and the broader community for making “Nutrients for All” into a global reality.

You’re invited for a Twitter Discussion (#SocEntChat) and Google+ Hangout on Wednesday, September 18th from 10am to 12:30pm EDT to debate some of the key innovation trends form the competition, connect with other social innovators and thought leaders, share the broader vision of Nutrients for All, and meet the competition winners.

To join the conversation, log-in to Twitter a little before 10 a.m. EDT on September 18, 2013. Then:

  • Use the #SocEntChat and #nutrients4all hashtags to make your comments visible in the stream. Use search.twitter.com or an application like Tweetdeck (www.tweetdeck.com) or thwirl (www.thwirl.com) to follow the hashtags and keep up with the conversation.
  • Introduce yourself and take a minute to get to know the other chatters when you join.
  • @changemakers will moderate the discussion and send questions to the whole group.
  • Send your questions to @changemakers without the hash tag (to keep them out of the stream) so they can be considered for this conversation.

Afterwards, join us for a 45min Google+ Hangout discussion with Ashoka’s Nutrients for All leadership team and the winners of Nutrients for All competition. The discussion will be framed around the innovations of the winners, the broader Nutrients for All vision, and questions and insights from #SocEntChat participants.

Don’t forget to RSVP on the Ashoka Google+ Page!
