Júlia Dalmadi, Future Food Institute Botschafterin, wird in den kommenden Wochen vier Workshops in der Markthalle Neun veranstalten. Vier Wochen lang gibt es jeweils Samstagmorgen die Möglichkeit, ein Forschungsthema anhand von Fallstudien der Food Innovation Program Global Mission in multidisziplinären Gruppen zu diskutieren. Ziel ist es, ein Gespräch über die Zukunft des Essens zu führen, einen gemeinsamen Raum für Brainstorming und Ideenfindung zu schaffen und Maßnahmen für eine positive nachhaltige Wirkung zu initiieren. Die Workshops finden auf Englisch statt – are you in?

Der Workshop findet im Markthallen Restaurant, Pücklerstraße 34, statt.

Scalable Sustainability and Circular Systems

Food systems are complex due to a dense network of relationships between humans and nature: they cover the entire globe connecting very specific local agricultural contexts and the biggest cities in the world, and they involve the entire global population, from farmers to consumers. We are currently experiencing a food crisis. The present food system is unable to provide sufficient healthy and sustainable food for the global population, homogeneously.
The interconnected issues call for a transition towards sustainable food systems, which has been identified among the six major transformations required to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Particular emphasis has been put on the need to create responsible food production and consumption patterns, while rethinking the relationships among the food system actors as well as between the human and natural spheres.
How can the different stakeholders contribute? Moreover, how can we inspire citizens to be part of the global “sustainable circle”? As for the link between humans and nature, the restoration of the relationship among the food system actors is central to the food transition. Creating strong community bonds can enforce the adaptation capacity required to tackle changes, like climate change, and thus increase the resilience of the food system.
