PLAY FOOD FROM THE FUTURE

THEME 2019

Sustainable Food

The food we eat is not only essential to our survival. It is also fundamental to both our culture and economy. However, alongside transportation and energy production, the impact of food production on our global environment is among the largest. Emissions of greenhouse gases and harmful substances to the ecosystem, the load on land and water resources, the limitation of biodiversity and poor working conditions are a few examples of how the vital supply of food affects the environment we live in. Food habits in large parts of the developed world also cause direct health problems for the population through over-consumption of sugar and fat, for example.

As in many other areas, a realignment in the production and consumption of food is essential if we are to reverse this spiral that is negative for both the environment and our health. We must further develop new approaches to food and how we consume, produce and trade in foodstuffs to supply mankind with its most fundamental needs.

WINNER 2019

Arash Derambarsh [fr]

With persistent work and an unfaltering commitment to the cause, he managed to make the French government pass a law prohibiting French supermarkets and restaurants from throwing away useable food. Instead of the food being discarded as in the past, it is now collected by charity organisations or so-called food banks and given to the poor.

Arash Derambarsh is this year’s winner of the WIN WIN Sustainability Award.
