Axfoundation together with Prosperous Planet will be hosting a discussion panel examining the multi-faceted challenges and solutions of antibiotic resistance through the lens of the Anthropocene. We welcome professionals across business, academia, authorities, and civil society, to this digital event which aims to increase the participants’ knowledge of antibiotic resistance – but more importantly spur ideas for innovative business opportunities.
The spread of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics is rapidly increasing across the world. The WHO labels this “a ticking bomb threatening human health in fundamental ways”. More people are projected to die from antibiotic resistance than cancer in 2050. In total, more antibiotics are used for healthy animals than to treat sick humans therein spreading the frequency of which we are in contact with antibiotics hastening the pace of resistance.
The event will digitally bring together leading business entrepreneurs and experts within the fields of medicine, agriculture, systems ecology, future studies, globalization, and complex systems analysis, to engage in a novel conversation about one of the big challenges for humanity in the 21st century.
