Picture containing all team members of the Geography of Food Research Group

Summary

The global food system is currently facing major challenges. Climate change, the destruction of the environment and population growth are exacerbating the global inequalities that already exist. What could a more sustainable food system look like? In the "Geography of Food" research group, we research and develop possible solutions at all levels of the value chain - from the field to the plate.
