So, we at the Feed Philly Coalition are going to be entering B. PHL Innovation Fest 2021 to be a speaker on the topic of Upcycling. A. to introduce people to the concept and B. tell them what they can do (obviously if you are a food serving establishment, we encourage you to upcycle but if you are a patron, you too can help by demanding your food service establishment upcycles.
PHL Innovation Fest 2021, is “an annual three-day innovation celebration started in 2019 to highlight Philadelphia as a fantastic place to live and work; to create meaningful connections locally and globally between people and organizations doing innovative work, and ignite new ideas and inspire change makers of the future”.
If the last year and a half has taught us anything, it has taught us we are all in this together – and by this, we mean everything and everyone. From the ingenuity that helped safely roll out effective vaccines faster than ever before to working together to lift voices, help others, and see different perspectives, each of us had a front-row seat to the remarkable power of innovation coupled with collaboration. The pandemic was the first thing we as an entire species fought together. Climate change is next, and we are hoping that feeding the world is on that list – we are advocating starting with Philadelphia.
PHL Innovation Fest 2021 “will focus on unity and collaboration, awakening the innovative spirit in all of us and encouraging attendees and participants to learn, listen, connect and discover new ways to think, re-think, create, and activate change. A knowledge laboratory of sorts, the 3-day series of events, workshops, concerts, and interactive experiences provides opportunities to hear from and meet with a diverse array of leaders, influencers, and change makers in entertainment, science, engineering, non-profits, and more. This year’s tracks include Collaboration + Partnerships, Diversity + Perspectives, Rebound + Growth”.
