Short circuit: awareness of sustainable food
Objective of the project
The Court-Circuit project is one of the five Sustainable Campus projects of the Green Office ULiège. Its objective is to make students aware of the benefits of a healthy and sustainable diet and to promote the distribution of local fruit and vegetable baskets on our campuses.
A quarter of our carbon footprint is due to our food, with the production of animal proteins having the greatest impact. Food has an ecological impact throughout its life cycle: production of raw materials, manufacturing or processing, transportation and distribution, use, and waste. It also has a social impact, on our health, on the fair remuneration of producers, ...
To raise awareness of sustainable food and support students in this direction, the Green Office offers educational tools:
1. A decision tree that allows us to make choices based on desired impacts. For example, if we want to reduce ourCO2 emissions, the most impactful option is to reduce our meat consumption. To improve our health and that of the environment, we will choose to eat a balanced diet and buy seasonal, organic or sustainable products. To promote the local economy, we will buy local, which also generates a positive impact on the environment (by reducing the impact of transport).
2. A map showing local food masaions.
3. Recipes with products that are good for our health, our local economy and the environment.
