UniLu Sustainability LunchTalks

ABOUT THE SUSTAINABILITY LUNCHTALK SERIES

The news talk about global warming, fair ecological and energy transitions, social justice, the circular economy and sustainable finance.Yet the mass of information is confusing.

To cut through the noise and to reinforce the internal dialogue and commitment for sustainable and societal development, the University of Luxembourg has launched a new LunchTalk series devoted to sustainability.

These LunchTalks show the University's commitment to share information and raise awareness on the very diverse themes of sustainability. So that we can - individually and collectively - contribute to a sustainable way of life in Luxembourg.

The Sustainability LunchTalks are for everyone, staff and students alike. They are organized for you. In a short and interactive format, they help you to understand and prepare for the future transformations to come.

The Sustainability LunchTalk series is coordinated by Laurent Betry, Chief Sustainability Officer of the University of Luxembourg.

“The environmental impact of our food” on the 29th of June at 12:30

Food is a source of life and well-being but is also responsible for many imbalances. Producing our food in the fields and the farms may affect ecosystems and the climate, as does our food purchases and consumer choices. Food waste also remains an important issue. What sustainable options are available to us when it comes to our food?

Dr. Elorri Igos is  R&T associate in “SUSTAIN” RESEARCH UNIT at the LUXEMBOURG INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (LIST).

 In this talk, we will explore how what we eat can affect the environment, looking at the whole supply chain, from the farm to the fork. We will also analyse different solutions to reduce our carbon footprint, and if there are any trade-offs to consider before changing our dietary habits. 

The co-host will be Dr. Rachel Reckinger, Principle Investigator of Sustainable Food Practices (food.uni.lu) and member of the national Conseil Supérieur pour un Développement Durable (Nohaltegkeetsrot).
