Sustainability is about the future. But the future is an unknown, and it is shaped by the choices we make today. So, it is important for us all to understand what we do or do not want our futures to look like. The goal of this interactive workshop is to activate you to think about the question: “what kind of future do you want?”.

This question is explored in this workshop in the context of food. Food is an important part of our everyday lives, it is quite literally our fuel. The food we consume is a personal choice, but also a product of the system surrounding it. The workshop takes a multi-faceted approach to teaching that highlights participant involvement through interactive activities, critically engaging with theory, and experiential learning.

  • How do you feel about eating insects?
  • What if we only consume liquid food?
  • What kind of food do you want to see in the future?

This workshop is meant for EUR students, lecturers and support staff. Please sign up by reserving a free ticket in our ticket shop! The workshop is led by Lauren Verheijen, Junior Researcher Future Food Systems at HAS Hogeschool and RSM Alumnus (MSc Global Business and Sustainability).
