27.03.2011 – yfm academie: gedrag & ethiek

on march 27, 2011 we hosted  the 2nd class of  the youth food movement academy. this time ethics & behavior are on the menu.

the day starts with 2 lecturers that present different perspectives on ethics & behavior regarding sustainability & food:

  • michiel korthals, professor applied philosophy of wageningen university, kicks off. first he provides the sustainability debate about food a historical context. for the future he advocates amongst other things ‘good farming’, and is against large scale farming and prefers mixed farming;
  • thereafter  henriëtte prast, professor personal financial planning of the university tilburg, argues that external norms (what others say and what others approve) mainly affect the choice behavior of consumers.

after the lunch there is a presentation of fairfood which is followed by a so-called lagerhuis debate (translation of the british house of commons about the question what determines eventually the transition to sustainability in food: the fork or the red pencil. and the day was closed while enjoying a drink and some of our almost legendary quinoa croquettes.

the youth food movement (YFM) is a network of students of all disciplines, young consumers and young professionals, including farmers, gardeners, cooks, fishermen and producers who together bring about changes in food production and food consumption. YFM is an international movement and was founded in 2007, the dutch association is founded in July 2009.

the YFM is based on the principles of slow food: young people committed to good, clean and fair food.
