querFELDein-Podcast: New Episode on Sustainable Food Systems

Hauptinhalt der Seite


PlanSmart Team

Did you know that in Germany, we throw around 12 million metric tons of food into the trash can each year? 52% of that food waste alone is generated in private households. And on top of that  — living in a climate crisis — the Global food production accounts for more than one-third of greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions from the production of animal foods are almost twice as high as those from the production of plant foods.

Not to mention the costs of transportation of food created by imports and exports or the amount of meat we eat. Health is another important issue, because currently 70% of all deaths in Europe can be ascribed to non-communicable diseases that are affected by what and how much we eat.

So with all these aspects in mind, our hosts Sibylle & Julia invited Dr. José Luis Vicente-Vicente and Beatrice Walthall to the podcast. They both work at (ZALF) in the project FOODSHIFT2030 which aims to make our food systems more sustainable.
