Glopolis – project: Menu for change
If we should be active citizens, we need support in education. Thanks to the Menu for Change project, students have the opportunity to uncover the connection between their everyday food choices and the global issues of today. At 550 nurseries, primary and secondary eco-schools, students talk about the ways they can take care of the Earth’s natural resources and of fair relations among its inhabitants.

Actor and producer
Hampton Creek’s brand Just is looking for new ways of using plant-based proteins in order to transform the current food system and ensure that tasty food can be healthy, sustainable and affordable at the same time. The project is based on an analysis of more than 400,000 species of plants that could be used for food production. The first of their new sustainable products is the plant-based mayonnaise Just Mayo.
New global food as a solution to the world’s food crisis
Changing our attitude towards food seems to be one of our best opportunities to face the global food crisis. It is important to bring protein-rich meals back to our plates, start growing our own food and use local ingredients. Gastronomy leaders, famous chefs, but also each consumer can help to make this change possible.
World Wildlife Fund
The goal of this World Wildlife Fund’s project, supported by the American Hotel & Lodging Association and The Rockefeller Foundation, is to eradicate food waste in the hotel industry. Hotels taking part in the project include Hilton, Hyatt, InterContinental Hotels Group or Marriott International.
Eat less meat, poultry and fish. Meat production uses more natural resources than plant-based production.
Freeze fresh products and leftovers that you are not able to eat in time. You can do the same with your take away meals and finish them the next day. It will save food as well as money.
When you order seafood in a restaurant, always ask if the seafood they serve is sustainable. Let your favourite places know that you are interested in seafood production that is safe for the oceans.
