S2.4 Food


“You become what you eat” is a well-known saying. Through our food we are connected to the cycle of matter. However, with the large-scale and industrial collection and production and transportation of much of our food, the earth is slowly becoming depleted. How do we create, preferably locally, sustainable and resilient food systems that not only contribute to our own health, but also to preserve or enhance our ecosystem?
