Since starting my Master’s degree in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis in 2013, I have been writing a blog on issues and policies related to sustainable food systems, production and consumption. The blog spans a wide range of topics from dietary choices, obesity prevention and food security to livestock production, environmental pollution and farmers’ mental health. I particularly enjoy translating complex scientific findings and insights into a language and perspective that resonates with non-expert members of the interested public, because I believe that environmental and agricultural policy issues are a concern of everybody.
I serve on the board of NAHhaft, a German NGO that pursues to contribute to sustainable food systems by educating, advising and connecting different societal groups (schools, businesses, and policy-makers) on ways to create change. Currently, we are working on establishing a website that serves as an information and networking hub for researchers and practitioners that want to present their work and collaborate on innovative solutions toward a more sustainable food system in Europe.
