Almost 100 professionals based in Europe, Asia and the USA, representing business, academia, authorities and civil society, defied the autumn darkness and joined Axfoundation’s and Prosperous Planet’s morning webinar on November 24, 2020. Guided by moderator Sharon Jåma, the discussion panel examined the multi-faceted challenges and solutions of antibiotic resistance through the lens of the Anthropocene, with focus on business as a driving force for change. The event digitally brought together leading business entrepreneurs and experts within the fields of medicine, agriculture, aquaculture, systems ecology, globalization, and complex systems analysis, to engage in a novel conversation about one of the big challenges for humanity in the 21st century.
