How can foresight build shared aspirations among wildly diverse constituents across a nation? Join KPMG's Ian Proudfoot, Global Head of Agribusiness, and Justine Fitzmaurice, Director of Consulting at KPMG New Zealand, on Mon, Dec 12 at 3pm PST / Tue, Dec 13 at 10am AEDT for a behind-the-scenes look at how they supported the design of an aspirational framework for the future New Zealand food system—one that looks after the environment, provides healthy food to everyone who needs it and continues to enable the country to generate prosperity from its food sector. The process was rooted and built from indigenous wisdom, and brought together diverse stakeholders (indigenous groups, food industry, government, food-insecure people, hospitality industry, scientists, and more) to articulate their preferred future scenarios for a food ecosystem. From these inputs, a Steering Committee identified shared aspirations and common ground among various communities, despite tensions that do and continue to exist among them.
