Food is essential to human life, but it represents far more than just nourishment. Food brings people together and is associated with happiness and enjoyment, identity and culture. And as private and mundane as it may be, ‘food’ can also be politically explosive. Indeed, through our food, we participate in a nutrition system that feeds people in many regions of the world. By the same token, we also impose a burden on our environment, our health and social peace around the world. It is also a system that fails to reach some 800 million people worldwide, who simply go hungry.What are the causes of such grievances? At the exhibition Future Food: Essen für die Welt von Morgen you have the opportunity to find out more on the subject. But first and foremost we look at what can be done: thanks to new ideas and methods, changes in policy, but in our own eating habits. After all, the future of food is inseparable from the future of life itself.
