Every one or two years, the United Nations organise the UN Food Systems Summit. In order to support the work of the Action Tracks of this summit the Global Management Consulting Firm Kearney hosts a virtual and truly global case competition aiming at generating game-changing solutions; the timing is in spring. The goal is to transform the way the world produces and consumes food and to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN.
Around 50 leading educational institutions from all over the world participate. There is a preliminary round first; in this round of 24 hours the teams play in 10 divisions against 4 other universities. The winners are assigned a consulting team to prepare teams for the finals, 12 days after the first round.
