Sustainability and Impact Global Series (1): Innovation to Defeat Hidden Hunger
Nova SBE innovating in the teaching of impact and sustainability!
From climate change, to poverty or gender inequality, enterprises and businesses are now asked to walk the talk- but what can be done? What is being done? The Grad students of Prof. Filipe Alfaiate course “Leading Impact Enterprises in International Development”, designed and developed podcasts as their final assignment where they applied the course’s content - and the best podcasts are at the centre of this Sustainability and Impact Global Series!
This first season has eight exciting episodes exploring how some enterprises in Africa are working towards impact and sustainability. We will look into the tools they use, the challenges they face, how they adapt their pricing, marketing, distribution to commercially reach a growing market of more than 2,5 billion people - with a positive impact!
In this episode we will look to the interesting journey of HarvestPlus, a global leader on biofortification (meaning develop food crops that contain more minerals and vitamins) which wants to free the world of hidden hunger suffered by 2 billion people. The research and production of this episode were done by Olivia Suchy, Florian Engels, Marlon Wanders, Sina Distler, Juan Muñoz, Jarmil Vedadi - with the support from Prof. Filipe Alfaiate and the TA Daniela Afonso.
