As a young scientist, gardener and world traveller, I am committed to the issue of food sovereignty in many ways.
After studying political science, economics and philosophy and working as an environmental economist at the Federal Environment Agency, I discovered how central sustainable food systems are for humans, the environment, animals and nature. Since then I dedicate myself to this topic both professionally and privately.
The biggest challenge is not that there are no concepts for sustainable agriculture or that we don't know how to change our diet. The question is how to put this knowledge into practice, despite all the social and political obstacles and barriers.
I regularly experience how grateful people are when they have the opportunity to come together and talk to each other. There is so much that is invisible, so many questions, ideas and different answers. When analogue rooms are no longer enough to see all this, virtual space can be a good complement. That is why I support the project.
Do you like writing, editing, designing, communicating or organizing? Then contact us and become part of our team.
I believe that sustainable food systems are one of the basic requirements for a society in which all people can live together in freedom, equality and solidarity.
It's all in the mix! As an agronomist, I am convinced that in the future we should focus on a variety in forests and fields to make use of the forces of nature. Also facing pressing future questions regarding climate change, nutrition and a fair distribution of resources, I see great potential in the diverse exchanges between the disciplines. With my participation I would like to contribute to interdisciplinary networking and to find common solutions.
In autumn 2017, we invited personalities from the agricultural and food industry, NGOs, media outlets and foundations to a workshop on the platform for food change - thank you very much for the feedback and the wide-ranging input!
In autumn 2017, personalities from science and research also contributed their ideas on the functions and structure of this website. We are very grateful for the feedback, which we integrated within the bounds of possibility!
