About the annual event 2022

2022 marks the 20th anniversary of SAI Platform. To celebrate this significant milestone, we are delighted to host our first in-person annual event in three years at the Cambridge Union in Cambridge, United Kingdom between 4th and 6th October.

The three-day event will start with a day of field visits in the Cambridge region followed by a one-day annual conference at the Cambridge Union and a celebratory 20th anniversary gala dinner at the University Arms Hotel. The event will close with our General Assembly, also held at the Cambridge Union on day three.

Reflecting on SAI Platform’s 20-year legacy and looking ahead to the future, the theme of this year’s Annual Event is People Powered Agriculture.

We know that progress takes connection, collaboration and pioneering people. Our 2022 conference will bring together multiple stakeholders from across industry, the farming community, academia, finance and policymaking to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the global food and drink sector as we transition towards more regenerative agricultural practices. 

The shared challenge and urgent need to implement this transition within the current context of climate change, pandemic threats and geo-political conflict requires collaborative thinking from all stakeholders. 

#SAIPlatform2022 provides a unique forum and networking opportunities with global sustainability and food industry leaders and senior sustainability professionals working in the food and drink industry.
