Sustainable food systems: hungry for more? (FSL) (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Vania Gomes Zuin Zeidler

wöchentlich | Montag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 02.04.2024 - 05.07.2024 | C 40.108 Seminarraum

Inhalt: How the pieces of art and works of Charlie Chaplin, Federico Fellini, Patricia Piccinini among others, as films, paintings, photographs, concerts, documentaries and ethnographic expeditions can promote reflections regarding more sustainable food systems globally? In this course, contents related to food production, consumption and nutrition security for all will be discussed, taking into account conventional and alternative agriculture models (including indigenous technologies), mechanisms to enhance farmers’ resilience to climate change and supply chain disruptions, prevention of food waste and loss, measures to eliminate hunger, climate-friendly diets, food packaging and culture, greener materials and processes, key drivers of food systems transformation and the potential implications of these changes on the three aspects of sustainability. The Farm to Fork strategy, at the heart of the European Green Deal and the US’ from Farm to Kitchen, together with additional pertinent references and guidelines will be presented using diverse didactic methodologies, especially case studies. Welcome and enjoy a crispy, tasty and artistic renewable menu, part of sustainable chemistry as you never experienced! Invited speaker: MSc.

Inhalt: Sustainable food system (SFS) is an approach that aims at delivering food security and nutrition for all people, i.e., a healthier, fairer, more productive and inclusive of marginalized or not-well informed populations, environmentally sustainable and resilient, and able to promote accessible and nutritious diets. These are complex and systemic challenges that require the combination of interconnected actions at the local, national, regional and global levels (FAO, 2018). As known, the crescent pressures from population growth, urbanization, changing consumption and diet patterns (including undernutrition, overweight and obesity), biodiversity loss and climate crises are all contributing factors to the strain on food systems, meaning that an overhaul in our current concepts and practices is needed for our food systems to become sustainable (UN, 2023).
