In Life 1.5, we need to use less to feed more

What ends up on your plate is a result of many decisions made before you get a choice, ranging from farming to packaging to logistics.


Welcome to the What’s on the menu exhibition and have a closer look at these three innovative student and research projects:


Retail 1.5: How can retail facilitate 1.5-degree food?
