The thesis takes part in the development towards an extensive change in food production and consumption.
The global climate crisis calls for major changes in all levels of our society. As food production accounts for around one-quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, this is a good place to start.
Since transferring new knowledge and habits to a whole population can be a challenge, there is a need for connecting people with a conscious food culture. Providing insight in the process of research, production and processing of food, can be one step in this direction.
The Catalyst Centre for Future Foods will be gathering a range of actors within the field of urban farming, culinary culture, nutrition and cooking. All in order to create an environment for knowledge exchange and innovation on the one hand, and invite the public in to see, learn, taste, and cook on the other.
