Disruption Dinner

culinary adventures through our changing world

The 2020s are set to be the most disruptive decade in human history

Cumulative changes in conditions and capabilities are crossing key tipping point thresholds--necessitating and enabling a period of economic transformation unprecedented in speed, scale and scope.​

How will these disruptive changes impact our food system and lives more broadly?

Disruption Dinners take guests on culinary adventures in pursuit of answers. The experience begins in the ocean in Asia, before heading to the grassland in America and finally ending up in the jungle in Africa. Different dishes and drinks tell the story of how disruptive changes, particularly in climate and technology, are reshaping our experiences with food. ​

The overall aim is to turn otherwise complex and abstract changes into deeply personal and relatable ones, while creating the space to collaboratively explore the most pressing questions of our time. The dinners provide a framework for evaluating disruptive change in order to guide these conversations, while also empowering guests to actively shape different possible outcomes in line with each of our values.​
